…”for better for worse, in sickness and in health..”

It is bloody bizarre to hear a news from someone you truly love that he/she is suffering from cancer, yes “cancer” the mega bitch in people’s lives, the reason why some families are put into a horrid situation where their level of faith was being tested, countless tears are shed and anxieties are all the way.

Mackenna Newman’s mother was recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer, her mom has been undergoing chemotherapy treatments and it includes being isolated from the family members to avoid the patient from getting infections. – A major twitch in Newman’s life.

Though they also endured the downcast of hearing the news, Mackenna beg to differ by capturing this photo and sharing her family’s battle on Twitter,

“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 said on her tweet.

There’s no way a cancer can compete to her father because in order for her mom not to feel lonesome, Mackenna’s admiring dad set up a desk outside the room, let the door ajar and sat there to talk to her like their usual tradition.

Her tweet gone viral and people can’t resist to react on it, it even raised positivity that makes her family go stronger in indescribable feeling.

Some who also has similar battle shared their thoughts,

This man definitely took his vows seriously and we ain’t complaining. How awesome! We are all sending our virtual hugs to Mackenna’s family and shout out to her dad because he made the world a little bit brighter by simply existing. Hats off!
