Joey Martin Feek, of the country duo Joey and Rory, has had a recurrence of cancer and has been diagnosed with Stage 4 cervical cancer. Feek had surgery to treat the cancer in 2014, and doctors believed they had removed it all, but she began having health issues again that led to the recent diagnosis.

Husband Rory Feek wrote on his blog that the family, including daughter Indiana, (whom Joey gave birth to in February of last year,) will travel to Chicago to visit a cancer treatment center to integrate natural diet and supplements and faith-based healing therapies into her treatment regimen along with chemo and radiation. The two are thankful for the outpouring of love that has come their way since the recent news, and are hopeful for the future.

“Our hope is that we’ll spend a good portion of the summer there, and then by harvest time in her garden, she’ll have her rubber boots on and will be up and down those rows gathering the harvest that the Lord has provided,” says Rory. “And like most falls, she’ll spend countless days canning and freezing and cooking what she grew, the hard way. I can’t begin to tell you how much love and support we’ve received in the last 5 days through emails, calls, texts, flowers, cards, gifts and above all prayers. We’ve been shown lots of love before from friends and family, from fans and strangers.  But this… this is a whole other level of love.  From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.”
