INDIANAPOLIS -- Joey Feek is living the rest of her life – however much is left – on her terms.

The country singer and Indiana native returned to Alexandria recently after deciding to discontinue chemotherapy treatments for terminal cancer.

Her husband and singing partner Rory has been keeping a blog of their story. On Sunday, he posted about the struggle they've been having in deciding what to share.

As part of that post, Rory revealed that even now, his wife still has hope.

"There isn’t a day that goes by that she doesn’t look me and her family in the eye and say, 'I’m gonna beat this,' or, 'I’m getting better, I believe that,'" Rory wrote. "And she asks me if I believe it, and I do."

The Feeks recently had their last dance before Joey became too weak to leave her bed.
