In October, Mackenna Newman’s mother, Marci, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Now, as a part of her treatment she needs radiation, due to which she is isolated from the rest of her family in order to prevent them from being exposed to radiation.
BuzzFeed News reported when Marci was undergoing her treatment, her husband, Jon, set up camp right outside her door and stayed there the “entire time.”
Her husband would sit outside her bedroom window and the two would talk.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the most devoted husband in the world.

Jon’s daughter posted a photo of her amazing father on Twitter. The tweet went viral and received thousands of retweets and likes. Stanger’s in their replies send their thoughts and prayers to the family to people praising Jon for being a devoted husband.
Marci told BuzzFeed News that her husband has always been by her side.
“Jon goes to every doctor’s appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation,” she said. “And, as you can see, if he can’t be by my side he is as close as he can get!”
