She Catches Dad Outside Parents Bedroom, Breaks Down In Tears When She Realizes Why

The Newmans are a close family - and at the core is Marci and Jon, better known to their daughters as Mom and Dad.
So when Darci was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in October, everyone rallied around her. But no one took it as seriously as Jon...
In an exclusive interview with Buzzfeed News, Darci shared just how supportive her husband is when it comes to the diagnosis.
"Jon goes to every doctor's appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation."
After a recent radiation therapy treatment, their 17-year-old daughter MacKenna (who still lives at home with them in California), was wandering through the house and stumbled upon something heartwrenching.
Dad was sitting outside of the master bedroom chatting peacefully while Mom rested in bed.
Since she just underwent treatment, doctors advised Darci to isolate herself so the risk of the radiation affecting others was lowered. It pained Jon to see his wife suffering alone in the bedroom, so he set up a chair and table right outside of the bedroom door.
Even though he couldn't be in the bedroom with his beloved wife, Jon would be as close as possible.
When MacKenna saw her dad waiting patiently outside of the bedroom, she snapped a picture and shared it on her Twitter page. She told Buzzfeed News that this is what true love's all about.
"I just thought it was sweet because they are so in love."
Even after countless years of marriage, Jon and Darci are still madly in love with each other. Jon would do anything to ease Darci's pain and discomfort, even if only for a minute!
Please keep Darci in your thoughts and prayers - with a family and support system like hers, we're sure she'll pull through!
