Joey Feek’s Christmas was brightened by a massive gathering of family, who celebrated at her home where she’s staying as she battles Stage IV cervical cancer. Husband Rory snapped a moving picture of what could be his wife’s last Christmas.
It was a lovely Christmas for Joey and Rory Feek and their daughter, Indiana, 1, who got to spend the holiday surrounded by their loved ones. As Joey struggles through Stage IV terminal cervical cancer, her family visited to support her on what had to be an emotional day. But thanks to them, Joey was all smiles. Rory posted a photo of celebration to the couple’s Facebook page on December 25.
Rory’s touching picture showed just how many people adore Joey. The bluegrass duo (AKA: Joey+Rory), had tons of family over to their home in Alexandria, Indiana for presents and food and tons of Christmas cheer. It’s a bittersweet sight; Joey’s hospital bed and IV tower are in the middle of the room, meaning she had to take some time to rest and take medicine during the long day; Joey is currently in hospice care, and was able to come home for the holiday.
But this is joyful. Joey is as far away from her medical supplies as she can possibly be in the photo, beaming brightly. It’s clear that this day, and these people, mean a lot to her. She had an extra special Christmas moment when she and Indiana got to meet Santa on Christmas Eve! Lucky girls! Some family friends promised to send over a big gift, and boy did they deliver! Apparently, Santa is a huge fan of Joey+Rory! We’re so glad Joey had a lovely Christmas.
