NFC Exclusive: How I Survived Breast, Cervix Cancer- Ibinabo Fiberesima
Although she is embattled with the court case, which has her sentenced to five years imprisonment, actress Ibinabo Fiberesima who was spotted having lots of fun at AMVCA after party, has indeed gone through some tough moments within the past few months.
In a recent chat with Nollywoodgists.com, the AGN President shared the awful times she went through and how she survived breast and cervix cancer.
“I had a lump in my breast and I had a surgery to remove it. It was still on a low level before I discovered it. After the surgery, I was going through emotional problems then I discovered a growth in my cervix during a cervical smear. It was also removed. They have all gone now. I want to use this opportunity to reach out to people, to always go for test and scans.
AGN is starting a programme for its members in every state, then from there, we go round to other people. We will do smear test, breast screening and prostrate screening for men.
We also have plans for eye-test and provision of glasses to those that need it. For those that can't afford the recommended glasses, my NGO will pay for them.'
She also talked about the court case that she is presently battling and how she feels about the whole trauma.
Yes, the case is still in court. Whatever is happening doesn't need to be made public or make so much noise about. Right now, it's a bit too much and hurts so bad,” she said in an emotional laden voice
