Reality personality Anna Cardwell, who was featured on the TLC program “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” has died, according to a social media post made by her family. She was 29 years old.
On Sunday, Cardwell’s sister Alana Thompson and mother June Shannon, known by her nicknames Honey Boo Boo and Mama June, respectively, wrote that Cardwell died Saturday night after battling cancer.
“I really don’t know what to say because my heart is completely broken,” Thompson wrote. “It hasn’t been easy watching my 29-year-old sister battle this terrible disease this past year.”
Thompson said her sister “was and still is a fighter.”
CNN has contacted reps for Thompson and Shannon for comment.
Cardwell never made a formal announcement about her cancer diagnosis, but talked about her battle on Instagram and TikTok throughout this year.
“We know it’s terminal, but when people ask…I just tell people a day or so because you never know,” Shannon said.
Cardwell appeared on the TLC reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” between 2012 and 2014. The show, a “Toddlers & Tiaras” spinoff starring Thompson, followed the day-to-day life of the family.
“We will love you forever Anna,” Thompson wrote Sunday.
