Adriane was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer two years ago. Now, she says she and her husband of eight years are in a battle with her ex-husband over who will raise her two teenage kids when she passes -- their biological father or their stepfather. The exes have been at war, and Adriane says she turned to Dr. Phil for help to ensure that she is doing everything she can for her kids.

“I just want to make sure no matter who has the kids, if I’m not here, that they’re in the best place possible. That they are getting morals and values and learning right from wrong and just being molded into productive members of society,” she tells Dr. Phil.
