Marci Newman was recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer and has been undergoing radiation treatments, BuzzFeed News reported. The treatments required that she remain in isolation.

But her husband, Jon Newman, didn’t let that stop him from being there for her.

One day, their 17-year-old daughter, Mackenna, came home from school to a heartwarming sight. She saw her father sitting on a chair that was positioned just outside of her mother’s room. The door was slightly cracked open.

Mackenna took a picture of her father keeping her mother company and shared it on social media.
