Mob Wives Star Angela “Big Ang” Raiola Loses Battle With Cancer

Submitted by on February 19, 2016 – 1:13 pmNo Comment

Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, whose larger than life personality and appearance endeared her to fans all over the world, has lost her battle with cancer.

The Mob Wives star was first diagnosed with throat cancer last March. Following multiple surgeries, Ang believed she was cancer free, but in December during a routine check-up, the 55-year-old learned the cancer had returned.

Reportedly, Ang didn’t respond to the chemo treatments she started after the New Year, and succumbed to the disease early Thursday morning surrounded by close family and friends. “All of us brothers and sisters, which there’s seven, [were there],” Ang’s sister Janine Detore told Us Weekly. “She died at 3:01 [a.m.], we stood until about 4:30 … The hospital was very good to us. They really were.”

Ang will be laid to rest early next week in her native Staten Island, New York. Her friends and family are in our prayers.
