He said: "I'm thankful for my wife, first of all. She's been so courageous and been through so much this year. Knowing that we have each other has been really buoying for me. It’s made me just appreciate what we have together - our family. I'm so appreciative of that. When you make a commitment to be with someone through sickness and health, sometimes life will test that and really challenge you. I feel like it's made us stronger.”

Chrissy then added she’s been able to stay strong because of her and John’s other children - Luna, four, and Miles, two - as she knows they will “get through this together” as a family.
She added: "I have these two toddlers running around that need me and need me to be happy and give them hugs all day. I have a husband that needs love. I have people that just take such good care of me, and we're all going to get through this together.”
The couple have also received an outpouring of love on social media since revealing the sad news, and have said they are beginning to find a "little bit of sunshine” in the darkness.
Speaking in a joint interview with People magazine, Chrissy explained: "You learn how to cope with it. I am very proud to say that there's multiple different therapies I'm using to hopefully become the same person that I was, and I'm okay with that. I’m okay with allowing myself to have bad days and good days."
