Mackenzie Mckee is praying for a Mother's Day miracle. After her mom Angie Douthit's stage four brain and lung cancer spread to her bones, the Teen Mom 3 star is telling RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview that the family is not giving up hope.

"It's been tough for me lately," Mckee, 23, told Radar. "I have never met anyone like her. She seems to be the only one who is not scared through all of this. She has so much hope and knows God is in control, despite doctors giving her numbers no one wants to hear."

The mother-of-three revealed her mom is undergoing yet another surgery to remove tissue on Monday, May 14.

"I wish she would go somewhere else," she said of getting another opinion. "We are just praying for a miracle."

But Douthit isn't letting cancer slow her down, as she continues to pray and share her story.

"Two days after finding out her chemo is not working and her cancer is spreading, she spoke at a women's event once again inspiring the world," she said. "I posted it on YouTube. It was an amazing speech."

McKee celebrated Mother's Day with a selfie alongside her brave mom.

"Wow what an amazing Mother's Day," she captioned the sweet snap. "I got to spend it listening to my momma speak and let others know how important they are and that God loves them. I love you mom. @angiedouthit you are a true inspiration."

McKee told Radar in January that her mom learned she has five inoperable masses on her brain and a 7cm mass on her lung.

The family started a GoFundMe page asking for $25,000 to pay for medical bills. They raised $3,102 before the page was taken down.

McKee and her family got tattoos that read "Always Be Kind" in their mother's handwriting as a tribute.
