Nollywood veteran actress, Ifey Onwuemene dies of endometrial cancer

Nollywood veteran actress, Ifey Onwuemene, has passed away after battling with endometrial cancer for many years. According to reports, her womb was also removed.

Taking to her Facebook page, actress, Gloria Anozie, announced the passing of her colleague, Ifey Onwueme on her new post. She wrote:

"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 ONWUEME was diagnosed with endometrial cancer, her womb was removed but she has been battling the ailment for many years now. In 2019, even after 8 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 bloated.
Ify spent more than 10million naira, 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 for draining every two weeks at a cost of 280,000naira but only 3litres 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.
Burial arrangements will be released by the family."
