Joey and Rory: ‘The Cancer’s Come Back’
A note at the duo’s blog, This Life I Live, shared the news with fans. Rory Feek writes that Joey hadn’t been feeling well in recent months, and while they hoped for the best, doctors discovered the cancer has returned.
“On Thursday, Joey had a port put in for chemotherapy and radiation,” Rory writes. “She starts the treatments in the coming weeks." Chemo and radiation may zap the tumor, but if they don’t work, the singer will be in for an even tougher road.
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.
The couple have a baby, 1-year-old Indiana. The blog post features several pictures of their baby girl having fun with her mother.
