Heartbreaking reason behind this dad spending days sitting outside wife's bedroom door

A daughter posted a picture of her father sitting outside a door by a table. Mackenna Newman stated in the Twitter post that he was there because he couldn’t go into the room.

In the bedroom was his wife who had to be isolated because of her cancer treatment. She was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in October 2015, according to Liftable.

Marci Newman, 49-then, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2015. She had been receiving radiation therapy as a part of her treatment regimen.

Marci was also required to remain in isolation for long periods of time because of the treatment. But her husband just couldn’t deal with the idea of not being close to his wife.

Jon, 45-then, decided that her treatments would not stop him from being by her side. That’s when his daughter posted a picture of him sitting in the hall outside the room where Marci was.

But this was not the first time he had tried unconventional methods of spending time with his wife while she’s needed in isolation. “At first he was sitting outside in the backyard in a chair and talking to her through the window,” Mackenna shared.

‘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 picture of her father went viral for its powerful display of unconditional love. Mackenna was quite surprised that the post received so much attention.

Her parents showed their love on a daily basis and through all of the ups and downs, they have endured.

Marci shared, “Jon goes to every doctor’s appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation.” She also shared that if he couldn’t be by her side he tried to get as close as he could.

Mackenna revealed that she had learned about the value of love through her parents’ example. In the meantime, Marci has been able to have surgery to remove the cancerous tumors but still needs to have regular checkups.

She hoped, at the time, to return to her job as a sixth-grade teacher.
