Teen Mom star Mackenzie McKee’s mum, Angie Douthit, has died.
The family of Angie confirmed the heartbreaking news on Instagram. Angie passed away on Monday, December 9 at 11:37pm.
They said that her final days were ‘spent lovingly surrounded by family and friends as they prayed, sang, and shared funny Angie stories’.
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.
