As we had previously reported Big Ang was going to start alternative treatment because her cancer was not doing any better, in fact getting worse and had high hopes for the future. Though cancer had a different plan and took her before she could get into the new treatment plans.
Doctors first found a lemon-sized tumor in Raiola’s throat, for which she had two surgeries, in March 2015 but then later discovered that the Mob Wives reality star had stage 4 lung and brain cancer.
There has a a plethora of support on social media after hearing of her death:
I'm not here for a long time, I'm here for a good time! -Big Ang Everything with you was exactly what those words embodied. You lived by your own mantra. I will love you, cherish you, and hold you in my heart wherever I go, and whatever I do. Thank you for being a major part of my life. You've taught and brought so much to me. Sleep peacefully, and kiss my grandmother. Goodbye my love!
Producer Joe Rosenzweig said to ShowbizSpy “Big Ang will be missed dearly she was such a focal point of the show and did her best to keep things together and running smoothly. She will be missed.”
RIP Big Ang 7/18/16
