Everyone knows that a cancer diagnosis can be completely life altering. Mackenzie McKee is experiencing this first hand after her mother was diagnosed with a complicated stage 4 cancer.
“I’m devastated, I’m angry, I’m shook, I can’t breathe,” Mackenzie wrote on an Instagram collage of her mother. “You are everything. Please pray.” She added:
“Angie has always been the healthiest person. Always eating everything organic. Doesn’t smoke and never did, doesn’t drink and she runs marathons and works out 2-3 times a day. Cancer does not run in the family. So this has come as a complete shock to the family.”
Unfortunately, Mackenzie has just given another upsetting update to fans: her mother’s cancer has spread.
“This morning we leave at 7:30 to begin another new journey. IV chemo. I won’t have my first treatment until Monday. I have education and nutrition classes this morning then the port will be surgically placed,” Angie wrote. “As I’ve shared before, I dread chemo. However, God revealed to me that if I never had to go through IV chemo I would never fully understand cancer.”
However, Angie seems to be staying strong and optimistic about her diagnosis. “I will now completely have full knowledge of what cancer patients are talking about. I’m also going to get to meet some incredible people while I sit in that recliner for a few hours getting my drugs!” she wrote.
