In August, Rory, Joey and their daughter, Indy, made the trip down from their home in Tennessee to metro Atlanta, where Joey received treatment at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Newnan.
By Oct. 23, doctors told them the tumors were continuing to spread aggressively despite treatment.
“So we did what you do when the medicine isn’t working,” Rory wrote. “We came home.”
The family has been back home in Tennessee enjoying the little time they have left together, but on Friday, Joey was rushed to the hospital with severe pain.
“Her pain had become too much to bear. A few hours later, the doctors told us that her pain was from the cancer tumors continuing to grow and become inflamed, and we need to concentrate now on helping her be comfortable,” Rory wrote.
