Anna Cardwell Dead: Mama June’s Daughter Dies at 29 After Cancer Fight

Anna Cardwell, the eldest daughter of Mama June Shannon, has tragically passed away at the age of 29 following a courageous battle with cancer. The heartbreaking news was announced by Shannon via Instagram on Sunday, December 10. She revealed that Anna passed away peacefully at 11:12 PM in her home, surrounded by her loving family. Shannon expressed her gratitude for the continued prayers and thoughts for their family during this difficult time.

The news of Anna’s cancer diagnosis broke in March 2023, when she was diagnosed with stage IV adrenal carcinoma after complaining of severe stomach aches. She underwent her first round of chemotherapy in February. Her younger sister, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, took to Instagram to reflect on the family’s struggles, emphasizing the importance of being supportive and understanding of others going through their own battles.

In May, Shannon provided an update on Anna’s health battle, mentioning that this round of chemo had been particularly tough for her. She opened up about the emotional toll of watching her daughter go through such a difficult journey, acknowledging the challenges of dealing with the gravity of the situation.

As the year progressed, Shannon confirmed that Anna’s cancer was terminal, and they had all accepted that she may not go into remission. Despite this devastating news, Shannon remained hopeful and shared that they were exploring various treatment options, including clinical trials and immune therapy.

Anna, affectionately known as Chickadee, leaves behind two daughters, Kaitlyn and Kylee, and her boyfriend Eldridge Toney, whom she had been dating since 2019. She had previously been married to Michael Cardwell, with whom she shares her daughter Kylee, and had also dated Michael Anthony Ford and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, with whom she had daughters Jessica and Lauryn and Alana, respectively.

Anna’s passing is a heartbreaking loss for Shannon and her entire family. The outpouring of love and support they have received is a testament to Anna’s impact on those around her. May she rest in peace.
