OAP remains strong while battling cancer
"Yes, my hair all fell off, but I'm still here and I am Thankful," Sensei Uche wrote on Instagram.
The OAP who is currently battling a stage 3 nasal lymphoma, took to Instagram to share words of encouragement with his followers.
"Yes, my hair all fell off, but I'm still here and I am thankful," Sensei Uche wrote.
He also encouraged them to always 'call on God, seek his wisdom and hold his hand.'
In July, Sensei announced that he had cancer, and appealed for a sum of $21,000 for his treatment.
His battle with cancer began in December 2016, when he realised that he was losing his sense of hearing. Following persistent nasal congestion and a recurring sore throat, he sought medical attention.
After visiting a number of hospitals and carrying out several tests, he was told he had an infection and begun treatment for it.
Unfortunately, the symptoms worsened and after several scans, an MRI scan revealed an unidentified growth in his upper nasal tract.
After undergoing surgery, a biopsy of the mass revealed that he had a stage 3 nasal lymphoma.
His treatment plan consists of six courses of chemotherapy and intermittent radiotherapy spread over a seven-month period.
