Recently we shared the devastating health news regarding country duo Joey + Rory‘s Joey Feek. Joey had been undergoing treatment for cervical cancer, but sadly to no avail. Family and friends of the Feek’s are calling upon the country music community to say a prayer for Joey on Thursday, November 5 at 8pm CST.
“You can call it a prayer vigil, or a moment of silence, or what it actually is… a husband asking for help for the woman he loves” Rory Feek shares on his blog. “But please, one thing I ask… don’t just pray that Joey is healed. Yes, pray for a miracle. But also pray for peace in her heart, and ours, if God chooses not to let this cup pass from her sweet lips.”
Rory updated his wife’s current health condition. “Most of Joey’s immune system is gone now and she’s thin and frail. Where she once jumped out of bed before the sun rose to rush out to her garden… she now quietly sleeps away most of the days. I lie beside her at night and I hold her hand and listen to her breathe. And I pray.” For the full blog post from Rory, please click here. The couple is spending time with Joey’s parents and sisters in her hometown.
The country music community, along with fans, are devastated that one of our own is going through this tragic time. Our prayers are with Joey and the entire Feek family as they navigate through this difficult time.
