Joey Feek Continues Cancer Battle
Joey + Rory have been updating fans as Joey Feek continues her losing battle with Stage 4 cancer.
With such a horrible disease, some days are better than others, and Wednesday (Feb. 3) was a difficult one for Rory Feek, as he shared with fans on social media.
“Feeling broken-hearted and blessed all at the same time this morning… watching my beautiful bride pour a lifetime of love into a few minutes a day.”
In October of last year, Rory revealed that Joey would no longer seek medical treatment for her cancer, as it was spreading too rapidly through her body. He has recorded their journey throughout the past several months on his This Life I Live as his wife continues to fight for her life, hoping to make it to see the release of their new album, the Grammys and their daughter’s second birthday later this month.
Most recently, Rory shared a post on his blog titled ‘The Power of the Plus-Sign‘ in which he explains the decision to use the plus sign in between their band name.
“What we were actually adding into the equation that day in 2008 … was God. It was faith that we were adding — a willingness to trust Him and be okay with whatever He had in store. That’s where the power is. There’s nothing magical about Joey and I together,” he continues. “We bring our skills and talents into this union, but God brings the magic. He takes those gifts and adds in His timing and mixes it with all the years of joy and hardship and smiles and pain we’ve had … and He makes something bigger.”
Joey + Rory are nominated at this year’s ACM Awards for Vocal Duo of the Year.
