On November 10, Teen Mom 2 star, Mackenzie Mckee, took to Instagram to share a photo of her mom, Angie Douthit, crossing the finish line of one of the many races she ran in her lifetime.
Sadly, Mckee revealed that Angie, who has been battling brain cancer since her diagnosis in 2018, had passed away.
“Momma Angie Douthit has crossed the finish line. She did not lose the battle, she won. She is healed and running in heaven in eternity. I don’t know anyone who left earth with such an impact.”
Mckee continued writing, “Your entire life, you never wasted a chance to let the world know God’s love. When we would try to brag on what an amazing person you are, you would respond with, ‘It’s not me, it’s God.’ Could you imagine this world if we all lived like Angie Douthit?”
The reality star added that her mom would always say, “It’s easy, we were put on earth to share God’s love.” And boy did she. When Angie was first diagnosed, she used her social media platform to spread that love she held so tightly.
Angie believed that in her moment of hardship, God would speak through her. “Momma, I did not deserve you,” Mckee wrote. “But you loved me so unconditionally. You were the glue that held me together. The one who always believed in me.” She said:
“I don’t know what I will do without you but I hope this goes by fast so I can hurry and come be with you. You passed a torch down to us and I will not fail you. I will live for Christ and love like him, like you always taught me. I will make you proud momma.”
Teen Mom’s Mackenzie Mckee and Family Ask Followers to Continue Spreading Light
Angie’s family also left a statement on her Instagram page as well. Along with a bible verse, it was revealed that she passed away on December 9 at 11:37 p.m. After “Angie found out about her cancer in January 2018, she wanted to keep everyone informed of what was going on so she made a social media post.”
And then it was something that became routine for her. “The next day she made another. And then another. And what started as an easy way to convey information turned into a wildfire of hope that spread over the world.”
The statemented continued, “We watched her get up every day 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 then encouraged her followers to grab the baton and continue Angie’s work of spreading positivity, light, and love. We mean, is there a better legacy than that?
