Joey Feek of the husband and wife country duo Joey & Rory is now in hospice care.
The singer, 40, who first revealed she had been battling cervical cancer in June of last year, had announced she was no longer undergoing treatment to fight the disease just last month.
Rory Feek made the heartbreaking update to his blog, This Life I Live, on Monday, revealing that the cancer is very aggressive and is causing Joey a lot of pain.
“At 4 a.m. on Friday morning we rushed Joey to the hospital in Muncie. Her pain had become too much to bare,” Feek wrote. “A few hours later the doctors told us that the pain was from the cancer tumors continuing to grow and become inflamed and we need to concentrate now on helping her be comfortable.
