In June, Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee revealed her mother Angie Douthit had been diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer. Rather than keep the devastating news a secret, Mackenzie’s mom decided to share her incredible story of perseverance with fans in a new book, entitled God’s Plan.

The book will document Angie’s cancer battle from the fateful day she was diagnosed and through her road to recovery and healing. It will be “a moving account of one woman’s heroic journey to love harder, discover divine purpose, and inspire the masses.”

Angie teamed up with celebrity manager Gina Rodriguez to bring her story to print. Thanks to Gina, Angie is working on telling her story with the help of celebrity ghostwriter Ardre Orie, who is also the CEO of 13th & Joan Publishing, which is producing the book.

“At 13th & Joan Publishing, we vow to tell the stories of our souls. Angie’s story is an exception to the rule,” Ardre told Star exclusively. “She has given a new face to the strength of a person fighting to persevere and a true testament to faith. Our goal with this project is to honor Angie’s life and her ability to teach us all about love. She’s an example of a walking miracle and the world must know her story.”

Angie’s daughter Mackenzie is even writing the book’s Foreward. “Our entire family has been on quite the journey. Through it all, we’ve learned that faith is the ultimate remedy,” Mackenzie shared. “We’ve been walking in faith and documenting this miraculous journey. It is our prayer that by telling this story of love and faith and healing that everyone will be blessed and inspired!”

God’s Plan will be officially released on September 11, 2018. It is currently available for presale. To order your copy and to receive updates about Angie’s book tour, visit
