Mob Wives, star Big Ang Raoila passed away early this morning due to stage 4 brain and lung cancer. Confirmation came through her personal Twitter account (you can read the message below) after conflicting reports on the star’s health were trending on the internet.
It was known that Big Ang was fighting against stage 4 cancer since 2015. Entertainment Tonight reported a “lemon size” tumor was discovered (and later removed) on the left side of her throat back in March. Sadly, by December it returned to the right side.
The reality star, who played a fun loving peacemaker, gave an update of her condition this past Wednesday on Dr.Oz. She publicly thanked her two children, who she is survived by.
“If it wasn’t for them, how would I get through this?”
Rest in Peace Big Ang
