Mob Wives Star Angela Raiola - better known as Big Ang - passed away today after a lengthy battle with brain and lung cancer. She was 55 years old, and in cruel twist of fate, her death had been falsely reported just hours before her passing.
She was first diagnosed with throat cancer in April of last year, and after undergoing numerous surgeries to have the tumor removed, she learned in December that the cancer had spread to lungs and brain. Raiola's sister set up a GoFundMe page earlier this month to help fund her sister's cannabis oil treatment after they were informed by doctors the chemotherapy was ineffective.
Soon after the news of Raiola's passing spread, the friends she left behind took to social media to share their condolences.
