Husband of EEW Magazine president Dianna Hobbs says ‘thank you for all the love and concern’

Share With all his wife has been going through, it’s been a difficult season for Kenya Hobbs, husband of EEW Magazine President, Dianna Hobbs.

But in the midst of it all, the spouse of 19 years and father of the couple’s four children is remaining grateful, especially for the compassion of family, friends and ministry supporters.

On Thursday, March 2, Kenya, an ordained Elder in the Church of God In Christ (COGIC), took over Dianna’s official Facebook page and told her followers, “My wife was having a tough day today, but the beautiful and heartfelt cards, and gifts you sent gave her a much-needed lift.”

As EEW Magazine previously reported, Dianna was diagnosed with Glaucoma last year and told she would be blind within five years. Months later, after falling seriously ill, doctors found and removed a tumor, and told her she had two incurable and debilitating autoimmune diseases: Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia.

Despite the rocky road for 44-year-old Kenya, who has been acting as primary caretaker, he is focusing on the good things. “Just want to say thank you for all the love and concern you’ve shown. Our family deeply appreciates it,” he said.

Hoping to brighten his award-winning media publisher wife’s day a bit, he asked those reading his post, “If you have a moment, drop Dianna a little line of encouragement and I’ll read your messages you to her.”

The kind words are still pouring in.

Last month, through the Hobbs family’s publicist Amy Bertinelli, Kenya said, “It has been hard seeing Dianna go through something so tough.” He added, “The prayers, visits, calls, texts, thoughtful emails, cards and gifts have meant the world to our family. Thank you so much. And please keep the prayers coming our way.”

The couple is accustomed to vlogging together on their YouTube channel, sharing family adventures and laughing a lot. They each refer to each other as "best friend" and have built a strong relationship over the years.

Now, as they face this latest storm, not only are they leaning on the Lord and each other, but also the numerous supporters around the world that love the Hobbs family so much.

“We thank God for you!” Kenya said.
