Seventeen-year-old Chisom Chukwuneke who was the best candidate in the 2019 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in her school has died after a battle with blood cancer.
“Forever in our hearts! Only a moment you stayed, but what an imprint you left in our Hall of Fame,” her school, Graceland College in Enugu said in a statement on its Facebook page confirming her demise. “A truly outstanding student! Rest In Peace Chisom!”
She died on October, 18th, 2020 in South Africa and had bagged seven distinctions during last year’s WASSCE.
Also known as leukaemia, blood cancer is a disease that sees the bone marrow and other blood-forming organs produce more immature or abnormal leukocytes. This subdues the production of normal blood cells.
