Yesterday numerous credible sites reported that the Mob Wives star had passed away; however, the family confirmed via Twitter that was not true. It’s so sad when anyway passes away, especially from such a grueling disease.
Big Ang was recently in the clear. After an operation in October, it was presumed that she was cancer free. Sadly in December the cancer returned to her throat and brain. On February 16th an episode of Dr. Oz featured Big Ang sharing her thoughts on the return of her cancer. “It’s shocking what happened,” shared Big Ang with Dr. Oz. “First I thought I was cancer-free. I was gonna have a big celebration and have a party. And then a month later I was stage 4.”

It’s heartbreaking to know she’s no longer here, but she’s also no longer in pain. Sometimes our healing doesn’t take place on this side of life. Rest in Paradise Big Ang! You’ll be missed.
