“For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.”
We must have heard these wedding vows a thousand times in movies and in life. In a day and age when marriages last less than a week, seems like these words mean less and less in our culture.
Except for one man, and his name is Jon Newman.
Jon’s wife was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and was forced to stay in isolation in her room due to her radiation treatments.
But Jon stayed by her side the entire time. Jon’s teenage daughter posted this picture with a message that said, “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.”
This amazing picture has gone viral all over the internet and well wishers from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram are all wishing Jon’s wife a speedy recovery from cancer…
Here is their 17 year old daughter who originally posted the photo to Twitter.
The daughter felt encouraged after posting the photo. “The amount of love I’ve received is crazy and I didn’t expect any of it, but I’m so grateful.”
Jon’s wife explains the amazing dedication he has to her…
“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!”
