A daughter’s picture of her father sitting outside her mother’s room while she’s in isolation has melted hearts online and caused people to refer to her father as a hero husband.
Recently she had radiation treatment for cancer and was placed in isolation so John decided to improvise so his wife wouldn’t be lonely. The doting husband moved his desk and chair to sit outside Marci’s room, where she was isolated and from there he kept talking to her and reassuring her following a radioactive iodine treatment.
She posted the picture on Twitter and wrote: “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”.
The story quickly went viral after it was posted and people praised John and spoke about how moved they were by his action. One woman also reached out by sharing a photo of her son doing the exact same thing for her when she was in isolation for the same cancer treatment. She encouraged Mackenna to stay strong and positive.
