Mackenzie Mckee is spending time with her loved ones. After her mother Angie lost her battle with cancer, the Teen Mom OG star spent time at her daughter's Christmas concert with her family.
"Mom was so excited to go watch the kids in their Christmas program. It has been a long exhausting week but we somehow made it to the concert and Jaxie was so happy to wear one of her chemo hats. Her favorite," Mackenzie posted the beautiful photos.
How adorable? The 5-year-old was so proud to wear her grandma's hat.

As it was previously reported, on Monday, December 9, Angie passed away following a 2 year battle with cancer. A post on her Instagram reads, "On Monday, December 9 at 11:37pm, Angie finished her race. Her last days were spent lovingly surrounded by family and friends as they prayed, sang, and shared funny Angie stories."
The post continued, "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. The next day she made another. And then another. And what started as an easy way to convey information turned into wildfire of hope that spread over the world. 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. But this is where you pick up the baton and run like she did mighty warrior. 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."
In January 2018, Mackenzie revealed that Angie was diagnosed with cancer. After breaking the news to their fans, the mother-daughter duo shared Angie's story hoping to inspire others around the world. At the time, Mackenzie said, "That’s all my mom wants, is to change the world. She just wants to inspire, even if God uses cancer and her life to change the world. I always thought I was going to change the world with my motivational speaking career and my fitness videos. Nope, my mom will change the world. I promise.”
Hours after the heartbreaking news, Mackenzie posted a beautiful tribute to her mother. She wrote, "Momma @angiedouthit 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. Your entire life you never wasted a chance to let the world know Gods 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. She always said 'It’s easy, we were put on earth to share Gods love.' And boy did she. 700 daily posts for you guys to read daily, hundreds of speaking engagements even when she could barely walk or speak, she simply trusted That God would speak through her. Momma, I did not deserve you. But you loved me so unconditionally. You were the glue that held me together. The one who always believed in me. 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," she concluded her beautiful post.
In 2019, Mackenzie joined the cast of Teen Mom OG for the last few episodes of last season. The episodes featured one of the most heartbreaking scenes in Teen Mom OG history. Mackenzie sat her three young children down to tell them that their grandma is sick and she isn't getting better.
Rest in peace, Angie.
