Teen Mom‘s Dalis Connell received some sad news this weekend. Her mother, who had been battling with cancer for several months, passed away. Luckily for Dalis, she was able to spend some some of her final moments with her mother with a little help from the Dream Foundation.

Dalis Connell’s official fan page sent out the following post to fans this morning:

“Please know that this is very difficult to write. It is with great sadness that we have to report that Kelley has passed and Dalis has received a guardian angel in her mother. Your prayers and well wishes did not go unappreciated and they meant more than you will ever know. There are many family and friends of Kelley on this page and our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. We ask that all fans please respect the privacy of Dalis as well as all of Kelley’s family and friends. ♥”

A couple of weeks ago, Dalis was able to make her second trip to California to visit her mother, thanks to funding from the Dream Foundation. After getting the news that she’d be able to fly out and see her one last time, she posted the photo above along with the message, “Thank you SO much to the “Dream Foundation” who heard our story! My brother and I didn’t have enough money to go see my mom in her Hospice home in California so the Dream Foundation paid for our plane tickets to go see her this weekend 🙂 this will be our last weekend with her.. and I couldn’t be more thankful I get to see her one last time. Love you mom! see you tomorrow!!!”
