Mama June’s daughter Anna ‘Chickadee’ shows hair loss from chemo

Mama June’s daughter Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell’s cancer battle is taking a toll on her hair.

In photos obtained by TMZ, Anna’s hair loss is apparent as she goes through chemotherapy to fight her stage 4 cancer diagnosis.

Family sources told the outlet that Anna recently underwent her first treatment, which already caused her hair to fall out in “chunks.”

Despite the hair loss and stunning diagnosis — she has adrenal carcinoma cancer that has metastasized to her lungs, kidney and liver — Anna is said to have a “positive outlook.”

The former reality star, 28, already has made changes to her diet by focusing on protein and cutting out sugar; however, the insiders told the outlet that she struggles with eating because of numbness on her tongue.
