Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell is battling stage four cancer. According to the source, Cardwell, the daughter of reality personality Mama June, was diagnosed with adrenal cancer that had spread to other parts of her body.
Unlike the rest of her family, Cardwell has recently been relatively absent from reality television. According to her IMDb, her most recent television appearance was in an episode of “Dr. Phil” in 2014.
Before that, Cardwell participated in 24 episodes of her younger sister Alana Thompson’s show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”
Cardwell recently reactivated her Instagram account after a lengthy hiatus. “Hey, I haven’t commented here in a while, but your gal is back,” Cardwell wrote on March 28. “Sorry for the photo dump that’s going to happen… I love y’all, and I hope y’all are having a wonderful week,” the mom-of-two wrote in a separate Instagram post on the same day.
Cardwell’s posts are suddenly flooded with supportive comments from her fans, even though she has yet to reveal her diagnosis to the public.
On the other hand, Thompson, better known as Honey Boo Boo, has made her family’s first public comment.
Alana Thompson confirmed Anna Cardwell’s diagnosis in an Instagram story. Thompson requested the public to show her family sympathy by sharing a screenshot of the original TMZ story. “This is what I mean when I say you never really know what someone is going through at home.
Regardless of how well-known they are, “She scribbled over the screenshot. “Yeah, I’m famous, but normal s*** happens to my family and me, and yall need to accept that as soon as possible.” None of Cardwell’s other family members have publicly reacted. Given this news’s recent news, it would make sense if they required time to issue a joint statement.
Thompson’s warning comes only days after she shared a contentious TikTok video in which she talked in an unusual accent. Some were offended because they thought she spoke in a “blackened” manner — a phrase used to characterize attempts to imitate Black people.
Thomspon quickly apologized. “No, I wasn’t trying to offend anyone!” she stated in a subsequent TikTok. “I did this because people frequently comment on how ‘ghetto’ my speech is, which I don’t believe I am! I believe I am my actual self; if you don’t like it, you don’t have to comment on it!”
