After rising to fame on TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, fans are always keen to stay up-to-date with June ‘Mama June’ Shannon and her daughters.

The family stars in a WeTV show nowadays, Mama June: Family Crisis. But, not all of June’s daughters have wanted reality TV fame. Her oldest daughter, Chickadee, appeared on the family’s shows less than her sisters. She’s now battling cancer and Mama June plans on moving back to Georgia to be by her side.
