Joey Feek Update: Joey Says She Hopes To Be Alive For Daughter’s 2nd Birthday As Rory Shares Video Of Indiana’s Birth

Joey Feek is still holding onto hope, despite her grim circumstances.

The country music singer of the duo Joey and Rory has been battling an aggressive form of colon cancer since last year, and in mid-October, she found out the cancer had spread to her colon. Her prognosis doesn’t look good, with her doctors giving her six to nine months or less to live. However, she has remained strong in her faith, and insists she still believes in the power of prayer.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, Joey’s husband and duet partner Rory Feek has been sharing Joey’s journey as she battles the terrible disease on his blog titled “This Life I Live.” On Saturday, Rory wrote a post about their bus driver Russell, who has been with the duo since they won the 2008 CMT contest Can You Duet, bringing a group of Joey’s neighbors and friends to their home to say their final goodbyes. While the group was there, Joey, who recently entered hospice care, told them she hoped she would still be alive through Christmas and her daughter Indiana’s (“Indy” for short) second birthday in February.

“Her friends gathered around her on the couch and she told them of her hope that she might be able to still be here for Christmas, or for Indiana’s second birthday in February,” Rory wrote in a post titled “A Bus Full of Joy.”

“Joey’s hope never fades. No amount of pain or medicine can touch it.

“It runs too deep. It’s connected to her faith in God. And as she will tell you, God can do anything.

“Then we all held hands and said a prayer, and put our hands together with Joey’s.

“In that moment, I knew, that if there was a way – if Russell’s bus could have been big enough – there would be thousands upon thousands of people on the bus trip up to see her… their hands around hers for the picture. All lifting her up, loving her.”

Speaking of little Indy’s birthday, Rory took to Facebook earlier to share the news that Indiana is now 21 months old.

“…Our little Indiana is 21 months old today. We’re going to sleep tonight remembering the morning we welcomed her into the world. We had no idea when we woke up that day what a gift God was about to give us… Rory captioned the post that included a heartwarming video of Indy’s birth.
