Carl Ikeme Opens New Cancer Unit In First Public Appearance After Treatment (Photos)

Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme made his first public appearance after intense chemotherapy treatment on Tuesday as he helped in the opening of a new cancer unit at Solihull Hospital in Birmingham.

Ikeme, 32, had been undergoing tough and intense cancer treatment until last month when he confirmed that he has entered remission.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers shot stopper needed chemotherapy treatment after he was diagnosed with cancer (acute leukemia) during last year’s preseason just before the start of the 2017/18 season.

He announced in June that he had entered into remission after a year of treatment.

Carl Ikeme was making his first public appearance since the remission announcement as he helped open the brand new Haematology & Oncology Day unit at Solihull Hospital in Birmingham.
