“She was surrounded by nothing but love from her immediate family, and closest friends,” Big Ang’s Twitter page confirmed on Feb. 18 at 3:01 a.m. ET.

We love that mega reality TV stars, Teresa Giudice from The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Jenelle Evans from Teen Mom 2 shared a favorite memory of Big Ang along with a tearful message. But they’re not the only celebs to grieve for their fellow reality star via Twitter.

While recently making an appearance on the Feb. 16 episode of Dr. Oz, Big Ang heartbreakingly revealed that instead of getting better, her cancer was “getting worse.” She confided, “It’s destroying me. I can’t believe what I look like.” Poor Ang! The reality star started chemotherapy in Jan. 2016, but unfortunately it did not help. Our thoughts remain with Big Ang’s family and friends during this extremely difficult time.
