This loving husband is surely not the type who forgets his ‘in sickness and in health’ marriage vows with his wife.
This heartbreaking picture of a man watching over his cancer-stricken wife by the door of their bedroom has gone viral on the internet; touching the hearts of many netizens.
The photo was shared on Twitter by Mackenna Newman. It’s her dad Jon, and inside the room is her mom, Marci.
Marci was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in October last year and had to be isolated sometimes in her bedroom to receive radiation treatment.
A few days ago, 17-year-old Mackenna took a photo of her dad showing him just outside her mom’s room.
“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,” she wrote.

The touching scene has gone viral on Twitter and many netizens praised Mackenna’s dad for his dedication, and for not leaving his wife’s side when she needs him most.
“The amount of love I’ve received is crazy and I didn’t expect any of it, but I’m so grateful,” she said.
In an interview with BuzzFeed, Mackenna’s mom, Marci, attested to her husband’s love for 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!”
