Mama June’s daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal carcinoma and had undergone multiple rounds of chemotherapy. In March, she began her first round of chemotherapy. She spoke on social media about her cancer struggle, stating that she was undergoing her third round of chemotherapy on May 10.

Cardwell took her last breath at her mother’s home in Milledgeville, Georgia. Gina Rodriguez, the family’s manager and close friend since 2014 said that Cardwell's daughter, all her sisters, her husband, and close family were at her side during her last moment.

Cardwell made appearances on the TLC reality series "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" between 2012 and 2014. Thompson starred in the "Toddlers and Tiaras" spinoff series, which chronicled the family's daily activities.

After TLC canceled "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" in 2014, the family pursued other reality projects, such as a WE television series featuring Shannon.
