Mackenzie McKee Pays Touching Tribute to Parents' Marriage During Her Mom's Final Days

by at .

Last month, Teen Mom fans were stunned by the news that Mackenzie McKee had separated husband Josh McKee from after six years of marriage.

Sadly, the split was just the latest in a long line of challengers for McKee.

For several years now, Mackenzie's mother, Angie Douthit, has been battling cancer.

The family recently received some devastating news, when tests revealed that the tumors have spread to Angie's lungs and brain.

Last month, Douthit made the difficult decision to stop cancer treatment in order to spend more time at home with her family.

While doctors have been hesitant to give Angie a specific timeline, it seems as though Mackenzie's mother is in her final days.

And the newly-minted Teen Mom OG star is taking full advantage of the opportunity to let Angie know how loved she is.

Mack posted the above photo on her social media pages last night, along with a heartfelt caption:

“After a rough scary night, mom was finally home and resting and my sister snapped this pic. ‘Through sickness and health.’ #goals,” she wrote.

Naturally, fans were quick to sing the praises of the entire Douthit family.

“I love your dad! I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a man as devoted as he is Prayers for your warrior of a mom,” one Twitter user wrote.

Mackenzie promptly replied, “He is a good good man.”

“This is a beautiful picture it brought tears to my eyes and I felt it in my heart," another fan commented.

"May God continue to bless your mom. Praying for her.”

“Your parents are truly one of a kind couple. I’ve never seen a husband more committed — and your Mom is so strong!” a third chimed in.

“They’ve been my favorite love story my entire life," Mackenzie wrote.

"I’ve always wanted a guy to love me like my dad loves my mom my whole life."

Obviously, Mackenzie's words carry added weight in the context of her current struggles.

The 24-year-old mother of four is on the verge of losing her marriage and her mother in rapid succession.

But far from causing her to fall apart, it seems these recent challenges have served as a powerful reminder to Mackenzie of what's really important in life.
