Mackenzie McKee shared devastating news earlier this week that her mother has been diagnosed with stage-four brain cancer. The Teen Mom 3 star is revealing details on Angie Douthit’s shocking diagnosis exclusively to RadarOnline.com.
“She’s getting a biopsy today at noon on her lung,” she told Radar. “The oncologist believes it’s a rare lung cancer that has spread to the brain. They want to make sure it isn't lymphoma or melanoma.”
Douthit will also undergo a bone scan today.
“If she is feeling okay she can come home for the weekend,” she said. “They are going to redo scans every three months to make sure she's improving."
She explained how she would likely undergo radiation, as her brain masses are inoperable.
“She can’t get surgery because it will be hard to remove the masses in her brain,” she explained. “At first they thought it was three masses on her brain, but now it has spread all over and they can’t remove it all.”
There are five masses on her brain. The four largest are 2.7cm on her left partial lobe, 15mm on the right side, 2.5cm on the right side against her ventricle and 1cm on left frontal. She also has a 7cm mass on her lung.
“The MTV crew absolutely loved and adored my mom,” she said. “My Teen Mom 3 producer did reach out to me yesterday saying she hasn’t really been a believer, but she did spend the day praying for my mom. That’s all my mom wants, is to change the world. She just wants to inspire, even if God uses cancer and her life to change the world. I always thought I was going to change the world with my motivational speaking career and my fitness videos. Nope, my mom will change the world. I promise.”
Mckee first shared the news on January 3 over Twitter.
“Prayer warriors,” she tweeted. “Please pray for my mom. What we thought was bronchitis turned out to be 3 masses on her brain, 1 large one in her lungs and multiple blood clots. We are shocked and devastated. She has brain surgery tomorrow. I’m sick. I’m so sick and want to wake up.”
The family has started a GoFundMe page asking for $25,000. They have raised $406 so far.
