- Joey Martin Feek can no longer walk. The country singer's cancer keeps her in bed with a morphine drip.

She was first treated for cervical cancer in last year, and the cancer returned this summer. Joey stopped cancer treatment in October.

Her story is told in a series of heartbreaking posts in the blog This Life I Live by her husband Rory Feek.

In his blog, Rory gives fans a look into the daily life of his family and of Joey's battle with the last stages of cancer.

The couple came to fame as the country duo Joey+Rory.

Many people have been following their story, checking out the videos and pictures described in beautiful words by Rory.

But in the November 29 blog post, Rory shared a heartbreaking photo of what may be their last dance.

Rory writes:

A few days ago, on the last day Joey walked, I took her in my arms in the living room and once more put her hand in mine and we danced.  She steadied with her cane and I softly moved her across the room singing George Strait’s “You Look So Good In Love” in her ear.  In the middle of the song though, as I was being careful not to step on her toes - she stopped and looked up at me and said, “How about if I lead?”.   And I followed her lead as we slowly two-stepped on her mama’s living room floor.

Like dancing, she wants to do this right, or not do it at all… to share the good, the bad, and the beautiful.

And so we will.
