After what feels like forever since the last season of Teen Mom 2 ended, Teen Mom OG’s return is just around the corner.
Even though fans are thrilled about the return of the show, not everything in this season will be fun and entertaining. In fact, it might be one of the most difficult seasons the show has ever seen.
Among the difficulties that the season promises is Mackenzie McKee’s struggle supporting her mother as she battles cancer. This devastating clip from the trailer proves that some parts of the season may be hard to watch.
It’s never easy to lose your mother, but having to watch your mother suffer and pass away when you’re only twenty five is impossible for many to comprehend. Unfortunately, the newest member of the Teen Mom OG cast, Mackenzie McKee, had to do just that.
In January of 2018, Mackenzie revealed to fans that her mother had been diagnosed with brain cancer. She informed fans that her mother Angie was “the healthiest person I know,” as Angie didn’t drink or smoke and ran marathons.
“I am so sad. I can barely breathe. I can not lose her. She did ask that I blog her whole journey and make a documentary in case something does happen we will always have that,” Makenzie wrote in the update. “I know God will use her to speak to others.”
In Angie’s update, she shared that her cancer story was unique.
“I’m unique from what my doctors tell me,” she revealed. “I have non-small cell carcinoma in my lungs, which is lung cancer. Stage 4. I also have small cell carcinoma in my lungs, and that doesn’t happen. No one gets both kinds of lung cancer. A nonsmoker, a marathon runner, it’s just blowing everyone’s mind.”
She also revealed that she had ten different tumors in her brain and that it had continued to spread.
“I have a tumor the size of an orange in my right lung that was wrapped around my windpipe,” she said. “There are so many tiny tumors in my lungs, I stopped counting on 40 on this side and just gave up on that side. It’s in my bones, it’s in my liver, it’s all over.”
In August, Angie had to go off chemo due to low blood counts.
