Joey Feek of the country duo Joey + Rory is still dealing with a battle with cancer. Doctors have sent her home to live on hospice and say that there is nothing left they can do for her. Us Weekly Magazine is now sharing that in a recent interview with The Tennessean, Joey is speaking out about death, her relationship with God, and more. This singer is doing a great job of dealing with such a hard time in her life.
Joey is still close with God and shared that she hasn’t stopped believing in prayer. Here is what she had to say in the recent interview.
“I pray that one morning I just don’t wake up. I don’t fear anything because I’m so close to God and we’ve talked about it so many times. I know he’s close. And I know he loves me. I’m really at peace. I still believe there’s healing in prayer.”
“I’m doing all these alternative things and taking things I’ve never taken before, organic, all natural, and homeopathic, it can’t hurt. I’m doing all I can to be more comfortable.”
Joey Feek comes from a religious family and they all believe in God and Heaven. Feek shared that they will all see each other once again in the future. This has to make dealing with this cancer battle just a little bit easier on her. It doesn’t look at this time like there is any chance that Joey Feek will survive, but she had high hopes that she would be someone who beat the odds.
“I was just greatly disappointed. I really thought we had it. I thought, ‘I’m going to be that exception. I’m going to be that statistic that stands out.’ We did the most extreme surgery we can do in the gynecologic world, but for whatever reason, it wasn’t enough. I was exhausted. More than anything I felt like I failed at something. But God decided for me that my job of singing for people down here is my legacy, and he needs me singing up there. That’s how I look at it.”
People shared that Joey Feek is enjoying her last days on this earth by spending time with her family and friends. Right now being with her daughter Indiana and her husband Rory is very important. They are doing all that they can to keep Joey from being in a lot of pain as well. Rory already knows what Joey wants done with her body when she passes, and it is very simple. Joey Feek wants to be in the family cemetery behind their home, where her mom’s ashes were spread. She also wants a tombstone for Rory to join her someday when his time comes. Joey only wants a simple wooden box with a cross on it to be her final resting place.
