Super Eagles goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme, made his first public appearance after he announced that his cancer is in “complete remission” as he helped open a cancer care unit at a UK hospital.
Ikeme, who took the reins from former Eagles no 1 Vincent Enyeama and played a part in Nigeria’s qualification for the 2018 World Cup, was diagnosed with Leukemia in July 2017.
On his first public appearance since announcing his remission, Digital Sports Editor, Nathan Judah, shared photos of Ikeme as he helped in opening a new Haematology & Oncology Day unit at Solihull hospital on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old shot-stopper, who lives in Solihull, looked fit and healthy as he joined Black Sabbath rock legend, Tony Iommi, to open the cancer care unit.
“Forget the game tonight…this is the best picture you’ll see today as a smiling @Carl_Ikeme makes his first public appearance since announcing he was in remission as he helped open the brand new Haematology & Oncology Day unit at Solihull Hospital.” Judah wrote.
