Battling the Bone Breaker

This was going to be a different journey….

A journey from Tanzania to Seychelles – a journey into the Indian Ocean Idyl of my next job in Victoria on Mahe Island.

This story has been ‘choked at birth’. Barely three weeks from accepting the post a routine medical check in Nairobi has put an end to things and forced me to return to the UK ahead of schedule.

Here I am embarking upon a journey, a battle against Multiple Myeloma (Cancer of the Blood Plasma). It’s a battle which will last many months but should ultimately lead to a remission, to the point of normality, though I will never be cured (medically) and will need repeat treatments.

I am writing this as a journal for my own sanity as much as anything else. Although it may reflect my Christian Faith from time to time it will not be a ‘Bible Bash’ more of a story. Feel free to join the journey a new blog here on

Following your travels through this unknown territory is both enlightening (so many medical words that get bandied about but never really explained) and inspiring (as you bravely face the ups and downs of an illness like this. Thank you for sharing so frankly and regularly. We’re praying too – with so many others!
