Joey Feek, the incredible singer, who is known for The Joey + Rory show, was recently admitted into hospice care after she ended her treatment of terminal cancer this October, according to Entertainment Tonight.
On her new interview with The Tennessean, this Saturday Nov. 14, Feek opened up about her struggles with stage 4 cancer, how she has come to accept the situation and prepares herself for the last journey of her life. She even reveals that she is not afraid of dying and believes that God has other plans for her.
"I wasn't mad at him, I wasn't upset," she says, talking about God when she learned her cancer had returned. "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 and says, 'She fought it.' We did the most extreme surgery we can do in the gynecologic world, and she did well.' But for whatever reason, it wasn't enough, and God had different plans. I was disappointed. I was exhausted."
Joey Feek, 40, and a mother of a 21-month-old daughter Indiana with husband Rory Feek, decided to stop the treatments when they found out that it was not effective anymore in her battle with cancer. The country singer opted for natural remedies. She returned to her Nashville home and spends her last days with her beloved daughter and loved ones.
"It's where God gives and he taketh away," the courageous singer says.
Feek continued, "I said, Rory, if it's OK with you, this is where I was born, it's where I was raised, and this is where I die," she says. "He said, 'Whatever you want.' I said, 'That's what I want.' "
At some point, Feek tells The Tennessean that she is not afraid of what's to come and is now contented to be at peace at her final days.
"I pray that one morning I just don't wake up," she says. "But 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."
