We recently got to catch up with Mackenzie McKee during a special “Where Are They Now” episode of Teen Mom and learned all about her mom Angie Douthit’s struggle with cancer. The former reality star’s mom opened up about the treatment she was undergoing back in June, writing, “This morning we leave at 7:30 to begin another new journey. IV chemo…. As I’ve shared before, I dread chemo. However, God revealed to me that if I never had to go through IV chemo I would never fully understand cancer.” Now, the family is celebrating Angie’s final round of the treatment. 

“I got to ring the bell!” Angie wrote on Instagram. “I wore my Wonder Woman shirt because I wore it to my first chemo treatment and thought it only fitting to wear it to my last IV chemo treatment. (Yes, I wore it to school all day too!) I was the first one to ring the new bell that wasn’t even mounted to the wall yet. Ringing the bell signifies that I’m finished with all my rounds of chemo. Although I’m still taking a chemo pill everyday, I’m through with IV chemo.”

Psalm 27:14 “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” I got to ring the bell! I wore my Wonder Woman shirt because I wore it to my first chemo treatment and thought it only fitting to wear it to my last IV chemo treatment. (Yes, I wore it to school all day too!) I was the first one to ring the new bell that wasn’t even mounted to the wall yet. Ringing the bell signifies that I’m finished with all my rounds of chemo. Although I’m still taking a chemo pill everyday, I’m through with IV chemo. Brad and I celebrated last night with dinner at his favorite restaurant. Watching him be so relaxed and celebrating brought joy to my heart. God has been so good. I haven’t been very sick from the chemo, I’m still working, and I still have my eyelashes lol. It was 18 weeks of being carried by the love of God. Your prayers have been amazing. It still blows my mind what God can do when his children get together and pray. We don’t even have to be in the same town, state, country, or continent. God hears all our prayers and he is so full of Grace, mercy and love that his compassion takes over and miracles happen. I have no control over my future. None of us do. But, we can relax and be calm knowing our big God is in control because he loves us so much! All we need to do is praise him. So, today rejoice in the fact that you’re alive. Praise God for times in your life when he carried you through impossible situations, because nothing is impossible with God. Then show God’s love and kindness to the world. Let them know about Jesus and how he died for our sins. Help your neighbors and greet everyone with a big smile and a hug. Have a happy future sharing God’s love. And go ring your bell!!! #alwsysbekind #staystrongmightywarrior #itsonlycancer

Mackenzie celebrated the news too, sharing her mom’s statement on Instagram and writing her own on Twitter. “Last round of chemo yesterday,” she posted. “She did it. And now I’m sitting in my car crying. #alwaysbekind #wanderwoman.”

Mackenzie’s been struggling with plenty of her own issues lately. “I’ve been done real dirty this year let’s just say that….” she posted on Twitter in the beginning of September. Many fans believed she was referring to being overlooked to replace Farrah Abraham while new outside cast members were brought in to star on Teen Mom OG, but it’s clear that’s just the beginning of what she’s been dealing with. She’s also taken to the social media site to express her frustrations with her own health issues. 

“I hate being a diabetic,” she wrote on Twitter on Sept. 25. “Everyday I fight so hard to feel good and stay alive. And still fail sometimes.” A day later, she continued, sharing, “Another day of working out and eating healthy with 400 blood sugars. I’m ready to give up. Why even try.”

Her mom’s final round of treatment is finally a bit of good news. We hope things continue to be on an upswing for Mackenzie — and that her own health improves, too.
