| Filed under: Love LineSad SadFamilyCancer

Joey Feek Update

Rory Feek is continuing to blog about all of the wonderful memories he's shared with his ailing wife Joey as she spends her remaining days battling terminal cancer.

In his latest post dedicated to his cousin and manager Aaron Carnahan on his birthday, the country singer describes all the many ways his life has paralleled to Aaron's.

For instance, both men have been married twice, have three children (one of whom has Down syndrome), and both have wives who have tragically been diagnosed with cancer.

If you think that's nuts, here's an even crazier commonality:

"Aaron's wife Jill grew up in the same farmhouse in Illinois her whole life. She has 4 siblings whose names all begin with letter J… Jeff, Jason, Jeremy and Jamie. My wife Joey grew up in the same farmhouse in Indiana her whole life and she has 4 siblings also. Their names are Jody, Julie, Justin and Jessie."

Whoa!

Although Jill has since recovered from her cancer diagnosis, Rory writes that Aaron had a very difficult time when Joey got the news:

The devoted husband penned:

"She does it because it's important to her. Planting a garden and raising food that she can feed her family is part of who Joey is. That doesn't stop just because you have cancer or are stuck in a bed for months-on-end. Life goes on. And what was important, is still important to her. I love that about my wife. That, and a million other things."

He added that he has been sitting at his bride's bedside, taking notes as she tells him how to keep the garden going after she's gone:

| Filed under: DrugsSad SadHealthCharityMedicineCancerSickReality TV

Oh no!

UPDATE THURSDAY 8:46 PM EST: Big Ang's family has already reached their fundraising goal! In only two days, the campaign raised far more than the $25,000 target!

According to the crowdfunding site, hundreds of generous donors gifted $36,941 for the lovely lady's treatment!


This is such sad news.

Last year, we learned that Big Ang's cancer has returned. And now, we're getting more bad news about her current treatment.

On Tuesday, the Mob Wives star's sister, Janine Detore, revealed that she has not been responding to her chemotherapy.

The VH1 alum's sibling created a GoFundMe page, discussing her current condition, writing:

"As you know my sister was diagnosed with stage 4 brain and lung cancer. Chemotherapy was started January 5 th. On January 26th the doctor reviewed her CT scan and informed us that the treatment was not working, and in fact one tumor grew larger and the other tumors had no change. We were advised that she would start immunotherapy the following week."

Oh no.

While she mentioned Ang isn't on the brink of death, she did say that the TV personality is really struggling with her breathing, and is in an incredible amount of pain.

So, the bar owner's sister suggested cannabis oil to reduce the pain. Unfortunately, the product is pretty pricey, which is why the famous family turned to crowdfunding. Janine wrote:
