Veteran Nollywood actress dies of cancer

Veteran Hollywood actress, Ify Onwuemene has died after a long battle with cancer. Ify was diagnosed with endometrial cancer and she had her womb removed. She had been battling this cancer for a very long time and in 2019 after 8 sessions of chemotherapy, the doctors said she the cancer had reached stage 4. Whether the diagnosis was wrong or she was being treated with the wrong chemotherapy is yet to be discovered because she still experienced pain in her upper abdomen and her stomach bloated.

Ify spent over 10 million naira over this ailment, courtesy of generous donations by her fellow actors and other Nigerians. A GoFundMe account was also opened for her but that didn't yield much money for her treatment. She had to go for draining every two weeks at the cost of N280,000 per session but only 3 litres of liquid could be removed at a time so that her heart wouldn't be affected.

Ify finally went to rest with the lord  on Tuesday, 25 May, 2021 after a long battle with cancer. Burial arrangements will be communicated to the public by her family when the time is. RIP.
