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.”

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."

1 Corinthians 16: 13-14 “Watch, stand fast in your faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love. “ Today has been a day full of love. There has been a huge outpouring of love from some very special people to mom. People have been so amazing and have let God use their gifts of giving and hospitality. We have all been so overwhelmed and amazed. Even several of the hospital staff and doctors that have come in have prayed with mom and told her how much she has influenced them and helped them with her message. She is currently unable to write this post herself because she is hurting too much so we decided to make a post for her. We thank you all for the love and generosity you have shown and continue to show. Please continue to pray. She is hurting very badly and she is having trouble with her memory. She loves you all so much. #alwaysbekind #staystrongmightywarrior #itsonlycancer
