“She’s getting a biopsy today at noon on her lung,” she told the site. “The oncologist believes it’s a rare lung cancer that has spread to the brain. They want to make sure it isn't lymphoma or melanoma.” She will also undergo a bone scan today.

“The MTV crew absolutely loved and adored my mom,” she said. “My Teen Mom 3 producer did reach out to me yesterday saying she hasn’t really been a believer, but she did spend the day praying for my mom.

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.”

The family has started a GoFundMe page.
