Mackenzie McKee: My Mom Is My Rock ... And She's Not Getting Better

by at .  Updated at .

Mackenzie McKee is really going through a difficult time right now.

For one, her marriage is falling apart.

It's still not clear whether she's completely done with her husband or if they're separating while they consider everything, but she's calling herself a single mom now, so it doesn't sound great.

But on top of that, her mother, Angie, has been battling cancer for nearly two years now.

And with this new update, it sounds like she may not have too much time left with her ...

1. The Diagnosis

The Diagnosis
At the beginning of 2018, Mackenzie revealed some devastating news about her family: her mother, Angie Douthit, had been diagnosed with cancer.

2. The Explanation

The Explanation
"What we thought was bronchitis turned out to be 3 masses on her brain, 1 large imone in her lungs and multiple blood clots," she explained in a tweet. "We are in shock and devastated. She has brain surgery tomorrow. I'm sick. I'm so sick and want to wake up from this nightmare."

3. Getting Worse

Getting Worse
Angie did not end up having the surgery, as her medical team determined there was too much cancer to remove in a single procedure. Doctors eventually found more lesions in her brain and more masses in her lungs.

4. Unimaginable

Unimaginable
Her official diagnosis was stage four lung cancer, which metastasized to her brain and has now spread to several other areas of the body.

5. F--k Cancer

F--k Cancer
Angie was diagnosed with two types of lung cancer, one of which was extremely aggressive and spread throughout her body with shocking rapidity.

6. More Medicine

More Medicine
Up until that point, she'd been taking a chemo pill, but after that her doctors added in IV chemo as well.
