Angie was diagnosed with cancer in January 2018. She wanted to document her journey to spread awareness and hope.

Her family shared, ‘She wasn’t able to sleep an entire night so she would wake up around 3am to write her posts. We watched her get up everyday in the darkest hours of the night to spread the brightest light that she knew of, her Savior Jesus Christ.’

‘There were times when she wrote her posts through pain and confusion. There were times at the end when she couldn’t type and would ask her daughters to type for her but she would not give up spreading the gospel message of hope. In nearly two years, she never missed her daily post…tomorrow she will.’

Her family have vowed to ‘pick up the baton and run like she did mighty warrior’. 

They encouraged Angie’s supporters to be more like her, ‘You can choose this day to be like Angie and use your social media engagements to make a difference rather than disaster, to spread love and not hate, and to always be kind.’

Our thoughts are with Angie’s family during this heartbreaking time.

Teen Mom 3 star, Mackenzie McKee, welcomed a baby boy yesterday, but it sounds like the reality star endured considerable stress in the run-up to her child's birth this week.

Taking to social media to ask the public for their prayers and support as her daughter prepared for labour, Mackenzie's mother, Angie Douthit, appeared particularly anxious.

Sharing a photo of her 21-year-old daughter and her husband on Facebook, Angie wrote: "Prayer alert: Mackenzie is having a c section n a few minutes." (sic)

"She is type 1 diabetic and the babies heart rate is high. He will be in the NICU for a while even though he weighs over 9 pounds, (according to ultrasound).," she continued.

Explaining that her daughter would welcome support, Angie added: "Mic is very nervous and scared. Please pray."

Thankfully, just an hour later Angie shared the news the family were hoping for, writing: "He's here!!! 10 pounds 1 ounce. I haven't seen him yet, but they r ok for now! Praise God!" (sic)

"Baby is in NICU with a navel IV and a tube for breathing," Angie told followers concerned for Mackenzie and her child's condition. "He'll be there for a few days. Please keep praying."

Social media users have responded in their droves and wasted no time wishing the family the best as they navigate the next few days.

Mackenzie, who is also mum to four-year-old Gannon and two-year-old Jaxie, has named her newborn son Broncs, and we are wishing her all the very best.
