NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Rory Feek, of the husband and wife country duo Joey and Rory, said his wife is ending her cancer treatment after a recurrence of tumors.

Joey Feek had undergone surgery earlier this year to treat her cervical cancer that was being treated with chemotherapy and radiation.

But in a blog post on Friday, Rory Feek said a new scan showed that the tumors had returned and the cancer was still spreading. A manager for the couple confirmed that that they were ending treatment.

Feek wrote that they have reached the end of what medicine can do and that his wife had returned home to spend time with their young daughter.

The couple won an award from the Academy of Country Music for top new vocal duo in 2010.
