Mackenna shared the sweet photo

The tweet quickly went viral, reaching over 5,000 favourites and 2,000 retweets, and users were quick to send their support to the family. One wrote: "Praying for your mum. My mum was just diagnosed with leukaemia and my dad has not left her side. She starts chemo on Tuesday." Another added: "Amazing...may she heal soon. My heart goes out to you and your family. Stay strong you have an amazing Dad."

The family spoke to BuzzFeed News about Marci's treatment. "Jon goes to every doctor's appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation," she told the website. "And, as you can see, if he can't be by my side he is as close as he can get!" Mackenna said: "The amount of love I've received is crazy and I didn't expect any of it, but I'm so grateful." She also spoke about why she decided to share the photo, saying: "I just thought it was sweet because they are so in love."
