Our hearts are broken for Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee after she learned that her beloved mom Angie Douthit has been diagnosed with brain cancer. "I’m devastated, I’m angry, I'm shook, I can’t breathe. You are everything. Please pray," pleaded Mackenzie on her Instagram, along with a collage of photos showing her close relationship with her mom.
On Jan. 2, she revealed that her mom's sickness was worse than they originally thought. “All prayer warriors. Please pray for my mom. What we thought was bronchitis turned out to be three masses on her brain, one large one in her lung, and multiple blood clots. We are in shock and devastated. She has brain surgery tomorrow. I’m sick. I’m so sick and want to wake up.”
The surgery on Jan. 3 forced Mackenzie to reflect on the woman that raised her, and clearly she's feeling extra grateful for her. "The most amazing woman I know," she wrote. "She taught me everything I know. She is the only reason I am the woman I am today. I love you, Mom."
The news is extra shocking considering how fit and active Angie is. In November they actually competed in a diabetes awareness run together, and her mom blew her out of the water! "Thanks Mom for always setting a good example of health and fitness in my life," Mackenzie gushed at the time.
Mackenzie mentioned how well her mom treats her body in an interview with UsWeekly. “She is the healthiest person I know," she said. "Eats healthier than me. Always organic. Doesn’t smoke, doesn’t drink, she is a school teacher so has no money. She runs marathons and works out two to three times a day. This does not run in our family,” “I am so sad. I can barely breathe. I can not lose her. She did ask that I blog her whole journey and make a documentary in case something does happen we will always have that. I know God will use her to speak to others.”
