DDWTD Deon Derrico Worries About His Mom ‘GG’

There is a lot of fun that happens in a house full of 14 active children. However, GG worries everybody because her cancer seems to show little sign of going away. The DDWTD star went for surgery but struggled with chemotherapy. In the trailer for Season 5, she told the family that she wanted to drop conventional treatment. Instead, she wanted to take a more holistic approach.

Deon Derrico’s mom slipped away from the others and went to get a “plastic sled.” Then, laughing and excited, she slid down the hill. The touching part for DDWTD fans came in her confessional. The TLC star said:

There’s times, here and there periodically, where I have the feeling that I’ve fought long enough. Then, it’s moments like that, that remind me you haven’t. You have not fought long enough. You keep on fighting. So, I’ll keep on fighting until God tells me to stop.
