“For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.”
We have heard these vows many times when a couple stands in front of their family and friends promising to stand by each other’s side in good and bad days. Unfortunately, No one can expect to live a life completely clear of disease, whether that be in oneself, in loved ones, or both, especially, when we’re talking about those serious diseases when it’s dangerous and even deadly for the sick person to be neat other people.
American couple Jon and Marci Newman really embody this principle. Check the images and the inspiring story below, and you’ll understand why it went so viral.
Mackenna Newman posted a picture on Twitter of her dad with a heartbreaking message
It all started when mother Marci got the sad news that she had thyroid cancer. She then started radiation treatment that requires to be isolated in her room. However, she wasn’t alone because her husband insisted to stay by her side.
The picture shows exactly how her parents are coping with her mother needing to be isolated in their home, and it is melting hearts across the globe.
Jon found a way to support his wife, without being exposed to the radiation himself.
“My mom has to stay in her room in isolation for her cancer radiation so my dad set up a desk at her door to keep her company and I’m crying,” Mackenna wrote on Twitter.
Mackenna uploaded the image in mid-April and it has since been shared by over 7,000 people.
According to Mackenna, her dad sits outside her mother’s room “the entire time”. Mother Marci for her part says this is typical of her loving husband Jon:
“Jon goes to every doctor’s appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation. And as you can see, if he can’t be by my side he is as close as he can get,” Marci told The Independent.
What a wonderful and loving husband you are Jon! Such a touching example of what love and marriage are truly about.
Now we keep the Newmans in our thoughts and hope that all goes well with Marci’s cancer treatment. We can no doubt be certain that with such a dedicated husband by her side, Marci is well surrounded.
