'Teen Mom OG' Star Cheyenne Floyd Is Afraid Her Daughter Will Die From Genetic Condition

By

MTV stars Cheyenne Floyd and Cory Wharton are no longer a couple, but their love for 2-year-old daughter Ryder has created an amicable co-parenting relationship between the Teen Mom OG duo.

Maintaining good communication is also a necessity given Ryder’s health issues. On a recent reunion special, Cheyenne and Cory opened up about the toddler’s diagnosis and how it has impacted the way they interact with each other.

Ryder on Teen Mom OG has a genetic condition called VLCAD.

According to the Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center (GARD), VLCAD is "a condition in which the body is unable to properly break down certain fats into energy, particularly during periods without food."
