Devastating News Has Been Shared About Mama June’s Daughter

Honey Boo Boo’s family has some heartbreaking news to share. According to new reports, Mama June Shannon’s 28-year-old daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, has been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer.

As People magazine reports, Anna was given the devastating diagnosis in January 2023. It’s alleged that the stage 4 adrenal carcinoma was first discovered in Anna’s liver, kidney, and lung after the 28-year-old had begun to complain of stomach pain.

Anna has since begun her battle against the disease, receiving her first round of treatment in February. According to TMZ, Anna’s family is “very hopeful” that she will beat cancer.

It’s reported that Anna’s team of doctors is waiting to see how she reacts to her chemotherapy treatments before building out a plan of action. While Anna has yet to share a statement regarding her diagnosis, her youngest sister, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, has.

“[And] this is what I mean when I say you never truly know what somebody is going through at home,” Honey Boo Boo shared on her Instagram story alongside a link to TMZ’s article. “No matter how famous they are. yes, I’m very famous, but normal sh*t happens to me and my family [and] y’all need to realize that asap.”

Anna is a mother herself. She shares 10-year-old daughter Kaitlyn and 7-year-old daughter Kylee with her ex-husband Michael Cardwell.

While Anna shared some of her life with the world on her family’s first reality show, Here Come Honey Boo Boo, Anna often keeps to herself. Her relationship with Mama June grew strained after Anna was assaulted by June’s then-boyfriend, registered sex offender Mark McDaniel, in 2003.

Anna ultimately moved out of June’s house and in with her grandmother to distance herself from McDaniel. Several years ago, Anna opened up about the assault, telling People that McDaniel “would try and touch me and all that stuff.”

“A week or so after it happened, I talked to Mama and she was upset, crying and saying, ‘I don’t believe you, I don’t believe you, why would you do this to me?’ And I was like, ‘Mama, he did that to me and I can’t do anything about it. You were never there to see it. You were always at work.’ “

Anna revealed she was 8 years old when the assault took place.

Several years later, the mother-daughter pair made attempts to repair their relationship in 2012. As Mamas Uncut previously reported, Anna was present for June’s wedding to her current husband Justin Shroud.

The world got a glimpse of June and Justin’s nuptials, which included all four of June’s daughters. While it was reported several months ago that June and Justin have been legally married since March 2022, the couple only just now exchanged vows in February.

According to a press release published by WEtv, June and Justin celebrated their married with an “intimate oceanfront ceremony.” And June was so excited to have her children and all of her grandchildren with her for this special moment.

“This was the first time the family had all been together since 2014,” June shared. “So it was really special to get married in a place where my family and I have had so many memories!”

June revealed her dress, which boasted many delicate details, was from David’s Bridal. “We wanted to have a small and very intimate wedding, so we didn’t have any groomsmen or bridesmaids. All four of my girls walked me down to Justin, and his mom walked him down the aisle.”
