Nollywood veteran actress Ify Onwuemene gave up for more than two years after battling cancer.
It is worth remembering that, in 2019, the actriz spoke up after a silent fight with her medical condition, and received assistance of fans and supporters, including an amount of one million naira from Davido, a well-known musician.
Despite the struggle to defeat cancer, Ify Onwuemene passed away on her Facebook page on 25 May 2021 as her colleague, Gloria Anozie-Young, verified.
Reading the post;
“With a deep sense of loss but total submission to God Almighty, we regret to announce that IFEY ONWUEMENE has gone to be with the Lord.
“IFEY ONWUEMENE was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Her womb was removed, but she has been battling the ailment for many years now.
“In 2019, even after eight sessions of chemotherapy, the doctors told her she had reached stage 4. However, we are not sure if she was given the wrong diagnosis or being treated with the wrong chemo, because she still felt pains on her upper abdomen and her tummy was bloated.
“Ify spent more than N10m, being helped with donations by her fellow actors and other Nigerians. A GoFundMe account was opened for her, but it did not yield much. She had to go draining every two weeks at a cost of N280,000, but only 3 litres of liquid can be removed at a time so that her heart is not affected.
“IFEY has finally gone to rest, today 25th May 2021. May her soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.”
