It was a dream come true for country singer Joey Feek. The cancer-stricken mother survived to celebrate her daughter Indiana's second birthday – something she hoped for as a dying wish. Husband Rory Feek shared an image and video on social media to inform fans about the family's emotionally-charged moments.
Rory shared the image and captioned it: "...some birthdays are more than just birthdays. They're dreams coming true and prayers being answered.
The Feek family consider each passing day "a miracle" as they get to spend some special moments with Joey, who is suffering from stage 4 cancer and is in hospice care since late last year. The 50-year-old gospel singer also shared a video of their daughter and a picture where she was treated to a hearty breakfast by her uncle.
The vocal duo, Joey+Rory, were nominated in the best country duo/group performance category at the 2016 Grammy Awards held recently, but lost the golden gramophone to Little Big Town. However, they admitted that being nominated for the highest honour was "more than enough" for them.
Joey's cancer battle, and her husband's unconditional love and support in such a crucial moment, has touched fans. Rory's latest post about the Grammys, proves the love the two have for each other. In his blog post titled, This Life I Live, he shared that his ailing wife booked air tickets for him to attend the biggest awards night of the music industry. However, he sent his daughter – from his first marriage – along with his manager for the special event.
"I can't leave her. I won't. I have done many foolish things and made lots of mistakes in my life, but this isn't going to be one of them. Instead, I will be sitting beside her and cheering on Little Big Town, and Blake Shelton and Charles and all the talented folks who are nominated in our category and others. It's an honor for us to just be a part of that night, it truly is," he wrote.
Earlier, Rory had mentioned that the entire family was "helping Joey to live the rest of her life" rather than wait for her to die. Joey has defied doctors' prediction, who had given her until November 2015 to live. Yet, the singer has managed to celebrate Christmas, New Year, Valentine's Day, the Grammys night and finally her daughter's second birthday.
