Joey Feek, who has recently become bedridden in her fight against cervical cancer, still believes in the possibility of a miracle recovery, according to her husband Rory Feek.

Joey Feek’s Cancer Battle

Joey, 40, entered hospice care earlier this month after it was determined that she was no longer responding to the cancer treatments available to her. Despite the grim prognosis, the country singer of duo Joey + Rory, still believes that it’s possible she can beat it.

“There isn’t a day that goes by that she doesn’t look me and her family in the eye and say “I’m gonna beat this”, or “I’m getting better, I believe that”.  And she asks me if I believe it, and I do. I choose to,” writes Rory in a blog post titled “Braver Than Me.” “For the most part, Joey’s time on hospice so far has been a roller coaster.”

“One moment her light is very dim and she sleeps all the time and is struggling with the simplest of things.  And we (along with the doctors and hospice) believe that the time must be very near…” Rory continued. “And then, she’ll awaken one day and start talking and we’ll see that familiar spark in her eye.  And she will be so crystal-clear with her thoughts, we will gather in the next room and say, “maybe, just maybe…?”.

Even though Rory admits that Joey has been unable to walk in days, she continues to show her optimism  and light.

“She can no longer get out of bed – she is so sharp and clear and her pain, for the most part, is so under control by the medicine that talking to her – you would think she’s her normal self,” wrote Rory. “Thinner.  Much thinner.   And with a hip new hairdo. But she is beautiful.  So so so beautiful. When God begins to take the light from the outside… the light inside just shines all that much brighter.”

Rory has been documenting Joey and his family’s journey with her cancer on his blog This Life I Life.
