“With life changing decisions on the horizon, Alana takes a closer look at her finances,” a WE tv press release for the season read. It continued, “Sadly, she discovers most of the money she’s earned over the years is gone, leading her to question June, who managed her account. It’s quite the heavy load for an ​18-year-old who is also watching her sister battle cancer.”

In a trailer for the season shared by WE tv,  Alana’s sister and legal guardian, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird, is shown telling their mother, “You took her f–king money,” followed by Alana crying, “Oh my f–king God, bro.”

“If I don’t decide, my scholarship money is basically up,” Alana told her boyfriend, Dralin Carswell, as seen in the teaser. Mama June’s youngest child was also filmed preparing for her graduation day, a moment she admitted she was “freaking out” about.

In another scene, Lauryn told Dralin that she won’t let him “f—k up Alana’s life.” Meanwhile, Anna, in the middle of her aggressive cancer treatment, said, “I don’t need any more stress on me.”

Amid the chaos of the new season, Alana hits a major milestone when she becomes the second person in the family’s history to be accepted into college. A press release for season 7 questions whether Alana will “have the courage to move across the country and pursue her dreams,” and whether she will “do it solo or wait for her boyfriend’s legal troubles to settle.”

“There’s not enough sweet tea to sugar coat this news,” WE tv’s caption for the trailer, shared via Instagram on December 23, 2023, read.

Cameras Filmed for ‘Mama June: Family Crisis’ Season 7 During Anna Cardwell’s Cancer Battle

The final days leading up to Anna’s death will be featured on season 7 of the reality show, sources close to the family revealed to TMZ in December 2023.

According to a WE tv press release for the season, “The family must rally to care for Anna and her daughters during this challenging time while navigating their own next steps.”

“Anna was very open about her health issues and wanted it to be included on Mama June: From Not to Hot so people could better understand the struggles she went through, and those of cancer patients in general,” the family insider told the outlet. “She also wanted fans to know everything she faced, since she was always candid with them.”

According to the source, Anna allowed camera crews to document her final hours of life, and even invited them to film her death itself. However, the production decided against recording her last moments to give the family privacy, the source added.

Anna’s husband, Eldridge Toney, told People on December 18, 2023, that she “wanted to bring awareness to her rare type of cancer because there is still so much unknown about it and it is very rare.”

Anna Cardwell’s Wedding Was Filmed for ‘Mama June: Family Crisis’

Anna’s wedding to Eldridge, which took place only one month after her cancer diagnosis and nine months before her death, was filmed for the reality show, as revealed in a trailer for season 7.

The trailer also revealed that Pumpkin’s husband, Joshua Efird, officiated the ceremony. “It is my honor to declare you husband and wife,” Joshua was seen telling the pair in the trailer, before a smiling Anna and Eldridge leaned in and kissed.
