Joey Feek of Joey + Rory’s Cancer Has Returned
Joey + Rory had to share some sad news with fans this weekend: Joey Feek's cervical cancer has returned.
In June of 2014, the Feeks first revealed that Joey Feek had undergone surgery to remove the cancer; on Sunday (June 14), Rory Feek revealed on the duo's blog, This Life I Live, that his wife hadn't been feeling well recently, and after a doctor's visit, they were told that her cancer has returned.
Joey Feek had a port put in for chemotherapy and radiation on Thursday (June 11), and she will begin treatments in the coming weeks. The doctors hope to solve the problem with only chemo and radiation, but if it doesn't work, Rory Feek writes, "Joey will be in for an even tougher road ahead."
Rory Feek continues:
Here’s what Joey and I know…
God has a plan, and His plan is our plan. Each day that we’re given is a beautiful gift from Him to us. And while we will pray each day for a miracle, we’re gonna live each day as if it’s a miracle. And it is.
“Lord, as believers… we trust you completely and pray for your will to be done. Not ours.
But as flesh and bone, husband and wife… we pray for complete and total healing in Joey’s body, so we can grow old together, holding hands in rockers on our front porch watching the sun go down.
So that our sweet little baby Indiana can not miss one precious moment with her mama.
Amen. Amen. Amen.”
The Boot offers our best wishes to the couple for what is sure to be a tough road ahead.
