Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell's little ones give her a reason to fight after being diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal carcinoma earlier this year.
On Tuesday, May 23, the eldest daughter of "Mama June" Shannon shared an exciting moment with her Facebook friends, as she took to the social media app with photos from her daughter Kaitlyn's elementary school graduation.
"I am one proud mama right now," the 28-year-old wrote alongside a series of pictures from the special day.

She was also joined by her boyfriend, Eldridge Tony, who has been a huge part of her support system amid her devastating diagnosis.
"I also can’t believe I am going to have a middle schooler and a second grader," Cardwell continued of Kaitlyn, 11, and her youngest daughter, Kylee, 7.
"Give me a minute while I go cry my eyes out," the sibling of childhood star Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson expressed. "I am so proud of my girls and everything they have accomplished."
Mama June poked fun at her daughter, replying to the post: "[You] did cry your eyes out tonight for sure while they [were] singing and up on stage."
