Carl Ikeme had the world in his hands.
A loving partner and daughter, a new baby just weeks away, and first choice goalkeeper for both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Nigeria.
All of a sudden, one July afternoon in 2017, his life was changed in an instant when a phone call from Wolves club doctor Matt Perry broke the devastating news that he had leukaemia.
No longer was it a battle to keep his place for Wolves and Nigeria, it was now a fight to save his life and put his body through the gruelling and invasive treatment required to beat blood cancer.
‘Why Not Me’ is Carl’s story. The story of how he dealt with receiving such potentially-crushing news and set about coming to terms with such a dreaded diagnosis.
Interspersed with his footballing journey from his imaginary 'Wembley' in Birmingham to an appearance in the Premier League, Carl describes how he accepted cancer into his life, and vowed that his mind would never, ever let him down.
An extraordinary and inspirational story which examines every aspect of the most important ‘save’ Ikeme has ever made, ‘Why Not Me’ is a tale of triumph over adversity which delivers a healthy sense of perspective to our everyday lives.
Written in conjunction with former journalist and head of media at Wolves, Paul Berry, ‘Why Not Me’ is an extraordinary and inspirational story which looks at every aspect of the most important ‘save’ Ikeme has ever made and delivers a healthy sense of perspective to our everyday lives.
