    Joey Feek (country singer dying from cancer)

    Full disclosure: I am not really a country fan and have never heard of Joey until recently.

    I thought maybe there were some country music fans here and I didn't see a thread, so I decided to post.

    There have been a few articles at the DM about her, and it has touched me greatly. Here is a link for an article:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...-February.html

    Please be sure to click on the link "this life I live" in the article. It is a blog that her husband, Rory writes.

    Warning: be sure to have some Kleenex handy.

    Joey and Rory are beautiful souls. They inspire me. Thank you for starting a thread for them.

    I wasn't aware of them either, but truly she is an inspiration in so many ways. The grace she is showing to others, the way she loves her baby girl as she savors every second, and being the brave one for her husband and other daughters. She is an amazing and beautiful soul teaching us all not how to die, but live to the very end with dignity, devotion, and determination. Thank you, Joey. Godspeed.

    Beautiful words.....thank you.

    And now I'm crying again.

    Rory's blog has just about torn my heart to shreds.
    I got to the part about their friend building her "box" and was sobbing uncontrollably.

    Thanks for reading.

    She and her hubby done the commercials for Overstock.com several years ago. That's how I first got to know them. Loved them ever since.


    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.

    Country radio has never given Joey and Rory any airtime. I wish that they would...especially this song, recorded in 2012, a few years before the C word ever came on the scene.

    They are such sweet souls. Why always the good ones, God??

    Prayers for Joey, Rory, Heidi, Hopie, and baby Indy. Thank you for sharing your mommy with us.

    What a wonderful, yet tear jerking song. I hate and love it at the same time. I cannot find words to express the variety of emotions I have, I'll just keep listening to their songs for a while. Thank you for sharing the link.

    Although not a fan, this story really touches me. After the birth of my fourth child I was diagnosed with stage 0 cervical cancer. Luckily for me, it was caught before it became invasive. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened had I only gotten a pap test done every three years, which is the new recommendation.

    Joey is far too young to be dying.

    It's been far too long since I've had a pap. I'm going to make an appointment.

    Thank you for expressing your thoughts in such beautiful words.
    So glad I found this thread.

    I have been keeping up with Joey + Rory since Joey's second cancer diagnosis. It has been hard to read of the sad and uplifting life they are living.

    They also have a Facebook page, along with the blog mentioned above. He has a way with words and a heart of gold.

    Here is an updated article.

    That little girl is freaking adorable.
    I wanted to name my baby Indy if he was a girl.
    Heartbreaking story.

    I just turned 60 and had what would have been my last pap for 5 years. Except after 40 years of perfectly normal results I had an abnormal result.
    I had to have a colposcopy, and which is basically a biopsy done in the Dr.'s office without any medication and it was pretty awful. However I realize I am very lucky. as there were no cancer cells present.

    I did a lot of reading about Cervical Cancer and it is an extremely slow moving form of cancer. I am surprised it could have advanced so far, but I assume it has something to do with the fact that she had cancer previously.

    Yes, she is far too young to be dying. It is really sad.
