Singer Joey Feek has been faced with the heartbreaking decision to stop treatment after battling cervical cancer for a number of years.

The 40-year-old’s husband Rory has written an emotional blog post about her choice to come home from hospital and spend her remaining time with her young daughter, Indiana.

Despite surgery and intensive chemotherapy and radio therapy, Joey’s cancer continued spreading. She has now arranged for hospice car at home with medication to help with the pain.

Rory wrote: "Yesterday I sat her down in front of her mama and they smiled and played and loved each other the way that only mamas and their little ones can. Afterwards, when Indy got sleepy, Joey held her and sang 'In The Garden' and other hymns as she softly stroked her silky-blonde hair. Perfect love filled that hospital room as we all held our breath and wiped our eyes."

What a brave and inspiring lady.
