Supers Eagles goalkeeper and 24th man for the 2018 World Cup, Carl Ikeme has made his first public appearance since being diagnosed with leukaemia.
The goalkeeper who recently disclosed he was in remission after almost a year of treatment was captured looking fit and healthy as he helped open a new chemotherapy unit at Solihull hospital.
Ikeme was first diagnosed with acute leukaemia last year by his friend and consultant, Manos Nikolousis and receive treatment at a hospital in Heartlands before being cared for at a clinic in Manchester.
Dr. Nikolousis was delighted about Ikeme’s recovery and said the landmark facility would offer world class care.
“I’m really pleased to see Carl looking really healthy and making sure we did the best for Carl and all the patients we have.
“For somebody who has had treatment and understands exactly how things work in chemotherapy, for us is a massive thing. And for the patients.” Dr. Nikolousis noted.
Ikeme was diagnosed last July and the news prompted an outpouring of support.
