According to a report by ET, Angela Raiola, known as “Big Ang” on the TV show Mob Wives, is close to death amid her battle with stage 4 cancer.
In March last year, a lemon-size tumor was discovered and removed from her throat in the same month. Later, in June, she underwent the same procedure for the right side of her throat as well. In December, ET confirmed that Raiola’s throat cancer had returned.
In February, the family set up a GoFundMe page to aid with Raiola’s doctor fees, which raised over $45,000 in two weeks. Later in the month, Raiola disclosed on The Dr. Oz Show that she had left her husband, Neil Murphy, as she continued her cancer battle.
“I felt like he never stepped up to the plate, so I was done with it,” she told Dr. Oz. “Now, it’s too late. I would rather be by myself. I would rather be alone.”
Raiola also appreciated her children on the program, saying, “If it wasn’t for them, how would I get through this?”
