In many respects, the ladies of the Teen Mom franchise have it much, much easier than most young single moms.
After all, they enjoy six-figure salaries from relatively cushy jobs that generally don't require them to spend much time away from their children.
But the ladies of Teen Mom seem to be cursed with a virulent streak of bad luck as well -- and sadly, the newest cast member is no exception.
It's only been three weeks wince Cheyenne Floyd joined the cast of Teen Mom OG, but already, her sad story has earned her the sympathy and support of a legion of new fans.
Here's the latest on Floyd's frightening situation:
A New Face
After gaining a modicum of fame on MTV shows such as Are You the One?, Cheyenne made her official Teen Mom OG debut at the start of the show's eighth season.
At first, fans were conflicted about the addition of Cheyenne to the long-running MTV series.
Big Shoes to Fill
Many were happy to see the fired Farrah Abraham replaced by just about anyone.
Others pointed out that Cheyenne was not one of the original girls (or "OGs") of the Teen Mom franchise, and wished that producers would leave well enough alone.
The Moms of Teen Mom
The other moms seem to have embraced Cheyenne with open arms, which is important, as the mother of one will need all the support she can get in the difficult times ahead.
A Sad Revelation
On a recent special introducing fans to the new moms (Bristol Palin also joined the cast this season), Cheyenne revealed some shocking news about her 1-year-old daughter Ryder.
