Som de flesta Black Sabbath-fans nog känner till fick den 68-åriga gitarristen Tony Iommi diagnosen lymfkörtelcancer 2012. Iommi har sedan dess levt med en ständig oro för att cancern ska komma tillbaka och sprida sig. Men nyligen fick han det glädjande beskedet från läkarna på The Spire Specialist Care Centre att behandlingen tycks fungera som den ska.

I samband med att centret mottog utmärkelsen The Macmillan Quality Environment Mark fick Iommi äran att avtäcka priset för pressen. Iommy berättade samtidig om sina erfarenheter för Birmingham Mail:

“I am in remission and hopefully, this situation will continue. (…) The chemotherapy and the follow-up treatment appear to have done the trick – but I’m aware that it could come back one day. I have a blood test every six weeks at my GP’s, and I come in here at regular intervals for check-ups. That’s something that I’ll have to live with for the rest of my life, looking for any warning signs that it might be rearing its ugly head again.”



Iommi understryker i intervjun att personalen varit fantastisk:

”When you have an illness such as cancer, it is important that the inevitable anxiety associated with a hospital visit is eased.The new centre, which is separated from the hospital, offers a warm and welcoming environment. All the staff are friendly and helpful. You can talk to them about any concerns you may have, about your treatment or just about life in general, which is sometimes exactly what you need. I can’t thank them enough for what they have done for me, and others like me.”

Black Sabbath återvänder till U.S.A. senare i augusti för att fullfölja sin avskedturné som avslutas i bandets hemstad Birmingham med två konserter i februari 2017.
