Warren Manger - January 2015
The Mirror Online published an article about Tony Iommi, legendary rocker of Black Sabbath, who was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2012 and kept working. The article quotes Iommi as saying, “It was a relief to be working on the album because it gave me something to focus on instead of sitting there waiting to die. Some days I could join in, other days I felt too ill. But the band knew it would be like that.”
The rocker went on to tell The Mirror that his band was very supportive and after they released the album he went on tour with them and played 81 shows in 28 countries, flying home every six weeks for treatment. Despite side effects, he “pushed” through it.
More information on working through treatment can be found here.
