Teen Mom OG star MacKenzie McKee‘s mom will soon be ending treatment and starting hospice care, People reports. Her mother, Angie Douthit, shared the news on Friday. She explained the difficult decision over Instagram, saying:
“Today was a little rough. Scans showed results that were not good. The cancer has grown in the liver and in the brain. There is also some hemorrhaging in the brain. I will have two more doses of radiation and that will be the last treatment I will be given.”
Douthit continued by saying she would be sent home from the hospital “in the next few days,” and that she has, “decided to have hospice come in when I go home for some extra care.”
On Friday, a tearful McKee addressed her mother's two-year battle with cancer and recent health decline in video on Instagram, saying, “I don’t want to go into details because I can’t hold it together to get through these details but it is not looking good.”
In another post, Mackenzie showed a tattoo that reads "Always be kind," which is also the hashtag in Angie's recent photos, along with #staystrongmightywarrior and #itsonlycancer. Posts about Douthit's condition are still being shared to her Instagram account by family members on a daily basis. In the most recent post, today was described as "a day of love."
On social media, Mackenzie expressed that she hopes her mother will make it to Christmas. In the meantime, she continues to stay by her mother's side and will undoubtedly carry on her warrior strength, gratitude for life, and loving spirit.
