Mackenzie McKee has paid an emotional tribute to her mom Angie Douthit as she continues to battle stage four cancer.
Angie’s health fight was revealed last fall, and a Teen Mom 3 special was reportedly filmed with Mackenzie and her mom.
Things were looking optimistic, but a wrench has been thrown into her progress after McKee announced last week that Angie’s cancer had spread.
Not only is she battling brain cancer, but her bones and lungs have now reportedly also been affected.
With Mother’s Day at the weekend, Mackenzie took to her social media accounts to celebrate her mom.
She said yesterday: “Wow what an amazing Mother’s Day. I got to spend it listening to my momma speak and let others know how important they are and that God loves them. I love you mom. @angiedouthit you are a true inspiration.”
In an earlier message, posted last week and in which she revealed new details about her mother’s healthfight, she said: “Not once have you questioned God’s love for you. You are truly praising him in the storms and yet again being the glue to my life.”
Mackenzie has had to deal with a lot in recent months. The news of her mother’s cancer battle emerged shortly after Briana DeJesus joined the Teen Mom 2 family.
There were reportedly some issues between Mackenzie and her when it was announced that Teen Mom 2 had added another girl, and that girl was Briana. Both women starred on Teen Mom 3, which was canceled.
Viewers later learned that MTV cameras had been in Oklahoma filming with Mckee, which sparked some curiosity.
Rumors have been swirling about her joining the Teen Mom family to replace Farrah Abraham. While she may not be adored by all fans, she would add a lot of value to the show, and the other OG moms had been at odds with Abraham, so McKee would be a welcome change.
