Joey Feek of the country duo Joey + Rory is in the final stages of life after receiving a terminal diagnosis following surgery and treatment for Cancer, and her husband and singing partner Rory has asked for a moment of prayer on Thursday evening (11-5) at 8:00 p.m. Central from fans, friends, family, and concerned individuals.
“In the book of Matthew, it says ‘”¦for where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them,'” Rory Feek wrote in his latest blog post. “I have heard that here in Joey’s hometown, people are going to line the streets of downtown Alexandria with candles on Thursday night for Joey’s prayer. And back home in Nashville and in other places all across the country and world, many are gathering to pray. Some in person, and most online. But all together”¦ to lift up the mother of our three beautiful daughters.”
Rory detailed how Joey is resting at home with her family in Indiana, and how Rory’s two daughters from a previous marriage have driven up from Nashville to be with their stepmother. Rory and Joey Feek have been married for thirteen years. “The dictionary says a ‘stepmother’ is: ‘I don’t think I’ve ever heard the girls tell anyone that Joey is their step-mom. But I have heard them tell people numerous times that she is their mother.”
Joey Feek was first diagnosed with cervical Cancer shortly after the birth of the couple’s daughter Indiana in June of 2014. Indiana was born with Down Syndrome. The duo released seven studio albums, and in 2010 won Top New Vocal Duo of the Year at the ACM Awards. Joey and Rory’s faith has never wavered despite the tragic nature of how their personal journey has unfolded over the last 18 months.
