Sad news from Joey+Rory‘s Rory Feek. In a new blog post posted this morning, the singer reveals that his wife Joey’s cancer has returned.
Last year – this exact time last year actually – Joey went in to surgery for cervical cancer. The doctors felt like they got everything and after a few weeks of healing, she made a full recovery. And now here we are again, faced with a similar situation.
Over the last couple of months, Joey hasn’t been feeling well. She had hoped that it was just a stomach virus or an intestinal issue, but after many tests and biopsies, it turns out that it’s more than that.
On Thursday, Joey had a port put in for chemotherapy and radiation. She starts the treatments in the coming week.
Rory goes on to say that the doctors are hopeful that with chemo and radiation, the cancer will respond favorably; however, as always with this disease, it’s touch and go and the outcome is never 100% assured. So Rory says they are just praying and treating every day as a miracle.
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.
My heart goes out to the pair and I will definitely be keeping them in my prayers. They’re such an inspiration and I’m sure their positive attitudes and overwhelming love for life and each other will go a long way in this battle they’re about to take on.
