“With the breaking heart, we are announcing that [Anna] is no longer with us,” she wrote. “She passed away in my home last night peacefully at 11:12 PM.”
In May, Shannon confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Cardwell had stage 4 cancer and had received an adrenal carcinoma diagnosis in January 2023. Just a day before Cardwell’s death, Shannon posted on Instagram asking for prayers as “some things have changed in our life over the last few weeks that are totally out of our control.”
In her post on Sunday, Shannon said Cardwell “gave one hell of a fight for 10 months” and passed away surrounded by family. “We love y’all and continued prayers and thoughts for our family [during] this difficult time,” she added.
Cardwell appeared on TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which ran from 2012 to 2014. The spinoff series, which followed Shannon’s family after she and her daughter Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson rose to prominence in Toddlers & Tiaras, was cancelled amid reports that Shannon was dating a convicted child molester.
The family currently stars in another spinoff, Mama June: From Not to Hot, which premiered in 2017 and airs on We TV.
