American social media influencer, Instagram star, and TikTok celebrity Anna Cunningham. She has spent the last three years fighting cancer. She is a native of Colorado and was initially diagnosed in March 2016 with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare kind of cancer that primarily affects teens and young adults. She then had therapy, and after it was over, she believed her cancer was healed, as did her family and her doctors. But it came back in the middle of 2016. To raise money for her therapy, her family has created a GoFundMe page. Anna has remained active on social media during her journey. She has gained almost 280,000 fans on TikTok, where she has been particularly active. She also has a YouTube channel with a few hundred subscribers and an Instagram page with about 6,000 followers.
Early Years of Anna Cunningham
On June 9, 2002, in Carbondale, Colorado, Julie Warren and Red Cunningham welcomed Anna into the world. Cooper is the name of her younger brother.
Combating Ewing’s Sarcoma
Anna was initially diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma in March 2016 by medical professionals. Ewing’s sarcoma is a rare kind of cancer that grows in soft tissue and bones. It is a small, spherical, blue cell tumor that is aggressive. It primarily affects the ribs, mandible, humerus, pelvis, femur, and clavicle (collarbone). Shortly after, she began her treatment. The family developed the belief that the word “cancer” had negative connotations during this time. They claim that hearing the term causes someone to become overcome with feelings of terror, panic, heartache, and uncertainty as well as the knowledge that all of their plans and their life up to that point will vanish totally in an instant. The association of this word with a kid “adds an even greater depth of grief and sense of injustice,” they continued. Because of this misconception, they are using the code word “peaches” to refer to cancer because it is typically connected to sweetness and summer. The fruits represent life and untidy abundance to the family.
Anna and her family honestly believed they had conquered her cancer when they defeated the illness for the first time. But on April 21, 2016, roughly a month later, it reappeared. When Anna’s aunt Deb Warren Logar realized how expensive her mother’s therapy would be, she created a GoFundMe page so that well-wishers could contribute to the costs of the care. After that, Anna began the second round of her battle, which at Children’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado, involved severe chemotherapy, radiation treatment, and a bone marrow transplant.
It returned in the middle of 2017. The lump that had developed on Anna’s forehead, the doctors informed the family, was the cancer returning. The therapy commenced again. After three months, the fundraiser raised the $15,000 that was its initial target. The family chose to increase the target amount to $20,000. Thus far, the fundraising has brought in slightly more than $22,000. The family said that a portion of the funds would be used to rent an apartment next to Children’s Hospital.
Anna’s mother stated in March 2018 that they had chosen the third therapy regime, which was still thought to be an active course of action. They continued to hold out hope that they would succeed. It would entail radiation and chemotherapy in that order. They intended to try out experimental treatments if it didn’t work.
Using Social Media
Anna Cunningham created her account on TikTok during the time when the program was known as musical.ly. “Smile” was the caption for the first video she uploaded on the app. She was singing “Smile,” a song by Daniel Skye, in it. She currently has over 280,000 fans and over two million hearts, making her a crowned user. Four of her videos were highlighted on the app towards the end of 2016, which helped her reach her first 100,000 admirers. All of her movies on the app seem to have been removed, though.
She has accounts on YouTube, Instagram, and Snapchat in addition to TikTok. Her Instagram handle is anna123bean, and she has two Snapchat accounts: yellowpillow123 and annaxcunningham. Her YouTube channel was started in September 2012, and it just includes one video. The post with the title “Best Friend Tag!!! So Gross!” was uploaded in August of 2017. The video features her best friend Mia, as the title suggests.
