Chisom Chukwuneke, a student who emerged the best 2019 candidate of the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination WASSCE, in her school, recently passed away after battling blood cancer.
Felix Chukwuneke, a Nigerian professor identified as the father of the deceased, took to Facebook to narrate how Chisom’s sickness started as leg pain.
He said this had prompted him to fly her to South Africa for medical care. She reportedly died after a prolonged treatment in South Africa.
Blood cancer, also called leukemia, is a disease in which the bone marrow and other blood-forming organs produce increased numbers of immature or abnormal leucocytes, thereby suppressing the production of normal blood cells.
