Grab the tissues, folks, because you’re going to sob after seeing how one husband is willing to do whatever it takes to make his sick wife feel better. Seventeen year old Mackenna Newman recently shared a photo showing how her dad is supporting her mom as she battles cancer. “My mom has to stay in her room in isolation for her cancer radiation,” Mackenna captioned a photo of her dad, Jon, on Twitter. “So my dad set up a desk at her door to keep her company and I’m crying.”

Mackenna’s mom, Marci, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in October, according to BuzzFeed. Her mother must be isolated during her radiation treatment, so Jon sat right outside of Marci’s room “the entire time,” according to their daughter.
But this isn’t the first time he’s supported his wife since she’s found out about her cancer. “Jon goes to every doctor’s appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation,” Marci told BuzzFeed News. “And, as you can see, if he can’t be by my side he is as close as he can get!” If this isn’t true love, we don’t know what is!
