Nollywood actress, Somkele Iyamah Idhalama in a moving post shared on Instagram revealed that her son was diagnosed with cancer three years ago.

The actress was at South Africa for Banky W and Adesua’s wedding when she got the call and immediately flew back home.

Three years later and her little boy is now cancer free! She shared the good news on Instagram today November 26, 2020.

She wrote,

“The past 3 years have been nothing short of a miracle with miracle after miracle after miracle. On Monday last week, we got the amazing news, nearly 5 months earlier than predicted, that our baby is certified #CancerFree!

Where do I start to thank every single person who knew and supported us along the way. @sickkidstoronto you have a special place in heaven, Dr. Summit Gupta and your entire oncology team!! I’m holding back tears that are overwhelming!! This video is only a spec of dust in explaining this journey. But what I will tell you is this, there is a living God. Period!

Let me give you perspective Nov.1-20th I did the #HallelujahChallenge with @nathanielblow and fasted the whole way. Day 21 I landed in SA, Day 22 I received news that our son was diagnosed with an acute childhood cancer. Day 23 I was back in Nigeria and the rest I summarized in the video.

Your faith will be tested but fear not for He has overcome and so will you and I. So for those whose weddings and milestones and projects I had to miss or turn down, please forgive me by rejoicing with me today.

“Come and join me sing Hallelujah, Jehovah Jireh has done me well”
