“We are leaving Alabama,” she told the news outlet. “I’m in the process of leaving Alabama now, and I’m in the final steps of my legal issues, so we’ll be going back to Georgia.”

In a sad turn of events earlier this year, Cardwell was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. She and her mother didn’t have much of a relationship but were working on patching things up before her diagnosis of stage 4 adrenal carcinoma.
The mother-daughter bond reportedly broke down about two years ago when June began dating McDaniel, which Cardwell didn’t approve of. June has since broken up with McDaniel and is now married to Justin Stroud, who relocated with her to Georgia.
“June and Anna were slowly working on building back their relationship about a year ago, but Anna’s recent stage 4 adrenal carcinoma diagnosis has rapidly brought the pair even closer,” an insider told Page Six at the time.
