Nigeria goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme shares update on his battle with Leukemia

Nigerian Super Eagles’ goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme who was diagnosed with Leukemia about a year ago has said he’s getting better and finally out of remission.

Ikeme wrote, ‘after a tough year and intense chemotherapy throughout I would like to let everyone know I am in complete remission’.

Though he’s not totally out of danger, he further said, ‘I still have hurdles to get over to be cured but I can hopefully now move forward with some normality. I would like to thank my family/friends to start with who have gone above and beyond for me. The support I have received from Wolves/Nigeria, the football world and from people from all over the world has been hard to put into words. I can’t thank everyone at the Christie and heartlands hospital enough for there care!!!What next who knows… I’m just taking it a day at a time’.
