Joey Feek has accepted that she doesn't have much time left to live. 

 

"I pray that one morning I just don't wake up," the singer, 40, said of struggling with terminal cancer in an emotional interview with Cindy Watts of The Tennessean for their Sunday paper. "But I don't fear anything because I'm so close to God and we've talked about it so many times. I know he's close. And I know he loves me. I'm really at peace. I still believe there's healing in prayer." 

 

Feek has been bonding with family and friends in her hometown of Alexandria, Indiana, alongside her husband, Rory, and their baby girl, Indiana, 20 months, after entering hospice care last week. 

 

The country star, who is one half of the singing duo Joey + Rory with her husband, was diagnosed with cervical cancer in May 2014 and underwent a radical hysterectomy. Although she had an aggressive treatment plan – including additional surgery, chemotherapy and radiation – Joey's tumors grew back. Doctors said she had six months to live in October, but the estimate seems to have changed.
