A Photo Of A Man Sitting Outside His Wife’s Room Has Brought Twitter To Tears


No matter what you say, cancer is a seriously messed up disease. It was estimated that this year, almost 1.7m people would be diagnosed with cancer, and almost 610,000 deaths would be caused just in the U.S. alone. While medicinal experts work hard and long to find a cure for this awful plague, it takes the lives of many many people every year, and it’s very unfortunate.

A recent cancer story posted by Mackenna Newman completely brought Twitter to tears.

The 17-year-old posted a picture on Twitter in order to bring home the emotional pain of someone that’s close to someone else and is suffering from cancer.

Her mother was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and her chemotherapy sessions meant that she had to stay isolated from other people.

The most common reason for the isolation is to reduce the risk of getting an infection from someone as they have weakened immune systems due to the radiation caused by the chemotherapy, and it represents a risk.



This is the photo she posted on Twitter

It’s a photo of her dad waiting outside her mother’s room during one of the radiation treatments, and it has captured the hearts of many Twitter users.

“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,” Mackenna wrote in a tweet that has since gone viral.

“The amount of love I’ve received is crazy and I didn’t expect any of it, but I’m so grateful,” Mackenna said in an interview.


Her mother also said that this is not an isolated act by her father either. “Jon goes to every doctor’s appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation,” said Mackenna’s mother.



This family needs all the support they can get right now, and it seems like they’re absolutely getting it.



Thoughts and prayers to Mackenna and her family!
