Alabama Barker recently received some upsetting news, and has used her growing social media platform to ask her fans for help. 

The stepdaughter of Kourtney Kardashian, 18, took to Instagram Stories this week to share a photo of herself with her friend Julie, who she referred to as a "dear aunt", explaining in the caption that Julie had recently been diagnosed with brain cancer. 

Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler's daughter accompanied the picture with a link to a GoFundMe page, which is raising money for Julie's cancer treatment costs.

She also wrote: "It could be an honor if you could donate even $1." The page has been written by Julie's twin sister Elizabeth, revealing that she had been diagnosed with brain cancer four years after beating breast cancer. 

She penned: "Unfortunately, the tumor we were praying was benign is metastasis of her previous cancer", adding "she currently will be recovering from brain surgery + ongoing chemo & radiation for an unknown amount of time."

Elizabeth added: "My beautiful sister leads us as the head of our family and is an amazing mother, daughter and friend for those who know her. She will be out of work to put her energy towards winning this fight once again." 

The post concluded that any "money raised will go towards rent, bills, food and medical expenses".

Alabama has over 2M followers, allowing the post to reach far and wide to help her friend. Until recently, she was Travis' youngest child, and has older siblings Landon, 19, and Atiana, 24, who her mom Shanna shares with ex Oscar de la Hoya, but who was largely raised by Travis. 

In November, Alabama became an older sister after Travis and Kourtney welcomed their first child together, Rocky 13. She is also a stepsister to Kourtney's three children from her relationship with Scott Disick - Mason, 14, Penelope, 11, and Reign, nine.

Alabama recently gave an insight into what kind of a father Travis was when she paid a heartfelt tribute to the Blink 182 star on his birthday in November. 

She penned: "Happy birthday to my everything! I couldn't have asked for a better father to raise me. I'm so thankful to have you, you've always made sure you've put your kids before anybody and have given us unconditional love."

She continued: "I've always been attached to your hip, you really are my hero, you inspire me every single day... you're such a loving, caring, hardworking, hustling, amazing father to us, you gave us such a beautiful life and I'm beyond grateful for everything you do for us, your mindset has taught me so much!

 "You've always given me a different outlook on situations and helped me become a mature, smart and down-to-earth young woman. You're my best friend, I love you whole bunches."
