Such a sweet gesture! Teen Mom 3 alum Mackenzie McKee isn’t letting her new gig as Farrah Abraham’s replacement on Teen Mom OG distract her from what’s really important — being there for her mother Angie Douthit as she battles brain and lung cancer. The reality star and her family members surprised Angie by paying tribute to her with a tattoo, and Angie took to social media to gush about it.

“I’ve never wanted a tattoo, although they don’t bother me. So when my daughters (Kaylee can’t get one while she’s pregnant) approached me about getting one I just told them it should have a great meaning. They asked me to write, ‘Always Be Kind’ on paper so it would be in my handwriting and away they went,” Angie wrote on Instagram. She said she thought they were going to add a cancer ribbon at the end of the tattoo, but they decided not to and Angie is glad they did because she didn’t want to be remembered for her cancer.

1 Corinthians 9:23 “I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.” I’ve never wanted a tattoo, although they don’t bother me. So when my daughters (Kaylee can’t get one while she’s pregnant) approached me about getting one I just told them it should have a great meaning. They asked me to write, “Always Be Kind” on paper so it would be in my handwriting and away they went. I thought they were going to add the cancer ribbon to it, but they chose not to, and I’m so happy, I don’t want my life to be remembered for the cancer. I want it to be remembered for what I did to share Christ. So last night when they revealed their tattoos to me, I was very pleased because, they all started telling me about how many people they have already been able to share what the tattoo means. Each person who asks about it, they tell them my story and explain how important it is to always be kind. Isn’t that awesome! You see, sometimes we get an attitude about certain things and that keeps us from seeing how it could be used for good. God can use anything to spread his love…even cancer, and yes, even a tattoo. We should never be quick to judge others. We don’t know their story. God created everyone for a purpose and has a great plan for their lives, they just need to understand how much God loves them. So go tell them!!! You may be the only person who shares Christ with them. Don’t miss opportunities, life is way too short. Hug and smile more. Live each day to the fullest. Be happy and at peace. God loves you! #alwaysbekind #staystrongmightywarrior

It seems like Angie will get a chance to share her message and her cancer battle with the world now with the help of MTV and her daughter Mackenzie. Earlier this week, TMZ reported that the network fired original Teen Mom OG cast member Farrah Abraham and will be replacing her with Mackenzie. Watch the video below to see Farrah’s statement regarding her firing from MTV!

MTV fans were first introduced to Mackenzie during her 16 and Pregnant episode that first aired in 2012. She went on to star in the spin-off Teen Mom 3, which was canceled after its first season.
