Mama June has been granted custody of her late daughter Anna’s oldest child, 11-year-old Kaitlyn, while the younger daughter, 8-year-old Kylee, will stay with her biological father, Michael. Despite Mama June’s complicated relationship with Anna, the family believes it’s the best situation for Kaitlyn, with Mama June planning to become her legal guardian.
Anna, who married Eldridge Toney during her cancer battle, passed away at 29. Mama June shared details of Anna’s funeral on TikTok, expressing the quietness in the house and fulfilling Anna’s wish to invite fans to her wake. Heartbroken, Mama June hopes fans will support Anna’s TikTok to reach a million followers before the funeral.
Anna’s daughter, Kaitlyn, took over her TikTok account just before her passing, sharing a video that drew attention for her striking resemblance to her late mother. Fans also expressed sorrow over Anna’s last TikTok video, where she appeared in high spirits just a month before her death.
In an earlier update, Mama June discussed Anna’s battle with stage 4 adrenal carcinoma, revealing Anna completed four rounds of chemotherapy. Anna’s sisters, Lauryn and Alana, shared that Anna, despite physical changes, could still manage daily activities. The family remains hopeful, acknowledging the terminal nature of the disease, and Mama June emphasized the ongoing search for new treatments and cures.
Despite the challenging circumstances, Mama June and her daughters, Chubbs, Pumpkin, and Honey Boo Boo, stay positive and cherish moments with Anna’s children. Kaitlyn, aware of her mother’s sickness, shows maturity beyond her age, while Kylee, at 7, understands her mother is ill but may not grasp the full extent. Mama June and Alana express hope for advancements in medical science, believing in the possibility of a cure for some types of cancer.
The family faces the difficult reality of Anna’s terminal illness, but Mama June, her daughters, and Anna’s children remain resilient, supporting each other through the emotional journey.
