Inside Mama June’s Oldest Daughter Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell’s Cancer Battle: Health Updates

Mama June Shannon’s eldest daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, was diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal carcinoma in January and sadly died less than one year later.

Anna’s cancer diagnosis was discovered after she complained of stomach aches and underwent a series of tests. Cancer was discovered in her liver, kidney and lung. According to the National Cancer Institute, adrenal carcinoma “is a rare disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the outer layer of the adrenal gland.”

Following news of her daughter’s diagnosis, Mama June told In Touch in May, “She is doing OK.” She has had two rounds of chemo. She goes for her third round next week,” the Mama June: Family Crisis star said ahead of the season 6 premiere in June 2023. “The second round was a little bit rough on her.”

June continued, “She’s just going through the emotions like anyone would be [with] cancer. We’re going through emotions as a family.”
