Martin has a radical hysterectomy performed at Nashville’s TriStar Centennial Medical Center as treatment for cervical cancer. The cancer is believed to be in the early states and no further treatment will be needed following the operation. Her rep says:
Joey is recovering really well and everyone is in great spirits. Both Joey and Rory are so humbled by the outpouring of love and support they’ve been shown over the past 24 hours. They know that God has a plan for everyone and they’re just taking the journey one day at a time.
