Update: New information tells us that Mama June’s eldest daughter, Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell, has lost her fight against cancer. Mama June shared on Instagram that her 29-year-old daughter, Anna, has passed away.
I have sad news to share. Anna, who was @annamarie35 on social media, has passed away. Her family posted a picture and shared the news on the internet. She fought a tough battle against a sickness for 10 months, but she’s not in pain anymore. She died peacefully at 11:12 PM in her home, surrounded by her family.
Anna’s younger sister, Honey Boo Boo, also posted on Instagram. She said that Anna was in a lot of pain, but now the family knows she’s at peace. Honey Boo Boo mentioned that it was hard to watch her sister fight the sickness for the past year. Anna was 29 years old and a strong fighter.
The family is asking for prayers and thoughts during this difficult time. They will share more information soon. Honey Boo Boo mentioned that the next few days will be tough for the family.
In an earlier interview, Mama June Shannon talked about Anna’s health. Anna had finished four rounds of chemotherapy for stage 4 adrenal carcinoma. Mama June said that Anna was doing pretty well and handling it as best as she could. Many people thought the treatment would make her sick, but she was bouncing back quickly. The family is taking things one day at a time.
Anna, you’ll be missed, and your family promises to keep your legacy alive. They love you, and you’re in a better place now, free from pain.
Anna Cardwell is now deciding what to do next with her treatment. She’s thinking about clinical trials or immune therapy, but she might choose not to do either. Her mom, Mama June Shannon, says Anna just wants to see how things go, even though they know the sickness won’t go away.
Mama June, along with her three other daughters, Jessica, Lauryn, and Alana, shared that Anna is doing okay. However, chemotherapy sometimes makes her feel tired. Even with these challenges, Anna can still do regular things like going to the grocery store and driving herself. But she has lost her hair, eyebrows, and arm hair due to the treatment.
Anna has two kids, and her 10-year-old daughter, Kaitlyn, knows that her mom is sick. However, she may not fully understand everything. Mama June mentioned that Kaitlyn stays close to her mom and probably knows that her mom won’t be around for much longer.
If you want to know more, you can watch the full interview below.
Kaitlyn, who is 10 years old, acts older than her age because she’s been around grown-ups a lot, according to Lauryn. Anna’s 7-year-old daughter, Kylee, understands that her mom is sick but may not know how serious it is. The family values every moment they spend together.
Even though the family knows Anna won’t get better, Mama June Shannon wants to keep hope alive. They accept that Anna’s sickness might not go away, but they are optimistic about new treatments or even a cure in the future. Mama June believes that with advancements in medical technology, there might be a cure for some types of cancer. She mentioned how quickly they developed a COVID vaccine and thinks the same can happen for cancer.
Alana, also known as Honey Boo Boo, hopes her sister can keep fighting the disease. Even though it won’t be easy, she’s confident in Anna’s strength. In an interview, Honey Boo Boo expressed how difficult it is to think that Anna might not be here in five years, but she’s hoping Anna can fight for 10 or 20 more years.
Anna has been sharing updates about her cancer journey on TikTok, posting videos regularly when she feels up to it. The family wishes her the best as she moves forward.
