Joey Feek‘s battle with terminal cancer went viral after being documented by her husband.
Since the country singer passed away in March, Rory Feek has continued to mourn the loss of his beloved wife — but is hoping to find catharsis by releasing a documentary about Joey’s ill-fated battle.
In addition to blogging about his wife’s illness, Rory had also been documenting Joey’s journey on video — and now, the documentary To Joey, With Love will be in theaters for one night only.
He wrote in his blog the screening would take place on September 20, sharing:
“Joey didn’t live to see her 41st birthday, but this September, just a week or so after her birthday on the 9th…my wife will get the chance to live again.”
Calling the film “my gift to her,” Rory said the story begins right before their daughter Indiana was born in February of 2014 — and follows up until the singer lost her battle with cancer on March 4 at 40-years-old.
Rory explained he made the doc because he wants people to “to have the chance to see my wife live,” writing:
“They got to see Joey die. To see her face death bravely and pass to the other side with honor. I’d like for people to have the chance to see my wife live. To see the incredible woman that she was before the doctors said there was nothing more they could do … so they can better understand the amazing impact she’s had on me and everyone around her after she learned that the end was coming.”
Sounds heavy, but we’re happy that the widower is finding solace after his wife’s tragic death.
