McKee posted the heartbreaking update from her mother on Instagram. “Not only do I have the non-small cell, I also have the small cell which is much more aggressive,” the update read. “That's why it has spread and that's why I can't gain weight and have no energy.”

She continued that Chemotherapy is going to start on Monday for three days. She will take three weeks off and start the process over again. “She said the Chemo would attack the other cancer quickly but they've never had someone who's never smoked get both kinds,” the caption read. “I'm their pioneer woman. Most people only live a year and a half with one of these. So prayers are all we got.”

McKee exclusively told Radar, “It’s not the way we want it to go. Our only hope is God.”

The mother-of-three continued that she wishes her mother would try natural healing over another round of chemotherapy. Her mother is unable to get a second opinion because “she just doesn’t have the money.”

McKee told Radar in January that her mother learned she had five inoperable masses on her brain and a 7cm mass on her lung. McKee and her family members got tattoos that read “Always Be Kind” in their mother’s handwriting as a tribute.
