    'Mob Wives' Star Big Ang Dies After Cancer Battle

    by Alex Ungerman 6:09 PM PST, February 17, 2016

    Angela Raiola, known as "Big Ang" on the TV show Mob Wives, died at age 55 in the hospital on Wednesday after a battle with stage 4 cancer, a family source confirmed to ET.

    In December, ET confirmed that Raiola's throat cancer had returned.
    Several months earlier, in March, a lemon-size tumor was previously discovered and removed from her throat in March 2015. Later, in June, she underwent the same procedure for the right side of her throat as well.

    Raiola is survived by her sister, Janine Detore, her two children, Raquel and Anthony Donfrio, and six grandchildren. In February, the family set up aGoFundMe page to help with Raiola's doctor fees, which raised over $45,000 in two weeks.
    Later in the month, Raiola revealed 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 expressed gratitude for her children on the program, saying, "If it wasn't for them, how would I get through this?"

    I was just telling my husband yesterday about her illness. This is sad. In tonight's episode of Mob Wives she was talk about how scared she was and how she was afraid she might not make it.

    Fuck you, cancer.

    I don't watch any of this stuff, but tonight I was in the allergist's waiting room with my son and I was going through People magazine and they had a short article on her. It said she had Stage 4 cancer that was all throughout her lungs and brain. And that she had been a 40-year smoker. I could have sworn I also read that she didn't pick up any signs of cancer until she was really far along.

    @NickiDrea I agree #Fuck Cancer

    I'm convinced we'll all die from it.

    How was she walking, talking, not looking so bad on Dr. Oz yesterday and died this fast? Wow. RIP Ang.

    Wait: some sites are saying this is not true?

    Cancer is a bitch. I recently lost a sister in law to breast cancer and brain tumors. I wasn't too keen on Big Ang, but I hope she rests in peace now. Fucking horrible way to go.

    So now it's being reported that she's actually still alive?

    UPDATE 10:10 p.m.:
    Previous reports that Big Ang died from cancer were called "totally inaccurate" via a release on Big Ang's Twitter.
    See original story below.

    I guess it's true, this from TMZ:

    'MOB WIVES' BIG ANG REP SAYS STILL ALIVE ... Fighting For Her Life

    "Mobwives" star Angela "Big Ang" Riola is still alive and surrounded by family members at a Manhattan hospital despite multiple reports saying she died according to a statement from a rep.
    Outlets first reported Ang had passed away after a battle with cancer around 6 P.M. PST but according to an official statement released on her Twitter, Ang is still alive. Addressing death the reports, the statement says, "All of the media outlets currently reporting this are reporting FALSE INFORMATION."
    TMZ has spoken with a family member at Riola's bedside who confirmed the statement, we're told her estranged husband Neil Murphy is there too.
    It continues ... "Angela is still in the hospital surrounded by her loved ones, and is fighting. Thank you."
    Ang, who is 55-years-old, was first diagnosed with throat cancer in April and learned in December it had returned.

    WTF? How can sources print without fact-checking. Poor family, they're going through enough without false death stories circling the internet. Still, doesn't look good at all. I read elsewhere earlier she'd been given last rites.

    Ugh I'm so disgusted. These media outlets are determined to be the first to break the story, they don't even care about fact-checking. It's someone's life.

    I lost an aunt to the same kind of cancer - today is actually the one year anniversary of her death - and it's so crazy to see how this sickness just eats away at you. What was once a vibrant person just became a dim shadow of herself until she passed. I hope Ang's pain eases soon and her family finds peace. Cancer's a bitch.

    I remember first seeing pictures of Big Ang and thinking, "What the hell?"

    It didn't take more than one episode to realize the "Big" referred to the size of her heart. RIP Ang.
