Less than 8 years ago, MacKenzie McKee was living the life of a normal teenager. She was a high school student and cheerleader with a loving family and boyfriend. However, life as she knew it changed when she found out that she was pregnant with her first child at 16.
MacKenzie gave birth to a baby boy, Gannon, in 2011, and was cast as one of the stars of MTV's 16 and Pregnant and in the new season of Teen Mom 3. She eventually married her boyfriend, and the couple welcomed two more children, a daughter, Jaxie Taylor and another son, Brocs Weston.
It hasn't been an easy journey for the young mom, but she always had her mother, Angie Douthit, cheering her on and offering her a shoulder to cry on when she needed it.
Now, it's MacKenzie turn to support her mother as she struggles with her health. Angie was thought to have been dealing with bronchitis, but unfortunately tests revealed she is suffering from something much more serious: brain cancer.
Shortly after the diagnosis, MacKenzie opened up about her mother's condition on social media and unfortunately, her prognosis is looking grim.
