Mackenzie McKee isn’t only known for her stint on “Teen Mom 3.” She is also known for being a “fitspo” and owning her own workout plan called “Body By Mac.”

And the 23-year-old mom of three isn’t the only fitness guru in her family— so are her siblings and their mother, Angie Douthit, a marathon runner.

MacKenzie has battled diabetes for most of her life,and sadly, the daughter recently revealed that mom Angie has been diagnosed with stage four brain cancer. She wrote on Twitter:

After having exploratory surgery, doctors discovered that Angie had five masses in her brain, rather than three. She will need to begin radiation treatments once doctors have a better understanding of her prognosis.

According to TMZ, MacKenzie has called her mom “the healthiest person I know,” saying that she “works out daily, doesn’t smoke or drink” and added that “the disease doesn’t run in the family.”

MacKenzie took to Twitter again earlier Friday to thank those who’ve been sending her family well wishes:

She wrote:

Thank you thank you to all who have shown us love. Wow, I have focused so much on the hate, I forgot how much love we have in this world.

The family has started a GoFundMe account to help pay for some of Angie’s expected medical expenses.
