Reality TV star Mama June’s daughter Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell has been diagnosed with cancer, according to a report.
Anna, 28, was diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal cancer of the liver, kidney and lungs in January, family sources told TMZ.
Adrenocortical carcinoma, also known as adrenocortical cancer, is a rare disease that affects an estimated 200 Americans each year, according to the American Cancer Society.
Anna initially complained of abdominal pain before several tests were carried out.
She had her first round of chemotherapy last month and has already lost hair as a result, the family sources said.

Doctors are waiting to see how the treatment affects her before making any further decisions, but her family is “very hopeful” that she will overcome the disease.
The family sources said they joined forces to look after Anna and their two children, 10-year-old Kaitlyn and 7-year-old Kylee.
Anna’s friend Eldridge has also shown his support.
The average age of patients with adrenal cancer is about 46 years, but adrenal cancer can occur in people of any age, even children, according to the American Cancer Society
Adrenal cortical carcinomas begin in the outer layer of the adrenal glands, which lie next to the kidneys. The adrenal glands are small glands that produce hormones.
Most growths that form in the adrenal glands are benign
