Ian Slingsby The long winding road

First post: Aug 29, 2020 Latest post: Apr 8, 2021
In July 2020 after six months of pain and great loss of quality of life i was diagnosed with cancer to be preicise Multiple Myloma. Multi Myloma is a blood cancer often not fully understood outside the medical community, it's complex and no two patients are the same. I am under going treatment at Olivia Newton John cancer institute in Heidelberg Melbourne under a very bright young Haemotolgist Dr Andrew Lim. I started my treatment under a regime called VRD chemotherapy after contracting COVID-19 and recovering in August 2020. I chose the Long winding road for my journey as a metaphor of my fight against the disease that will never fully go away from my body. My aim, my goal / wish is to ride my bicycle along the Long winding road something I can only do when the pain and healing in my bones has occurred. Welcome to my CaringBridge website. i am using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. I really appreciate and need your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting and listening to my story along the Long winding road.
