Poor Big Ang. After being told she was cancer free just a couple of months ago, it seems the ‘Mob Wives’ star’s cancer has returned. Get the heartbreaking details below.
Only two months after overcoming cancer, Big Ang, 55, is unfortunately going to have to deal with the disease once more. Doctors recently found that her cancer has returned, even after she went through intense treatment and underwent surgery. Despite the sad news, we hope to see her pull through this once more.
After Big Ang visited the doctor for a routine checkup in the second week of December, doctors had to break the news to Ang and her family that her cancer had come back, a source told TMZ. This time around, though, things could be even worse, as there are reportedly signs of cancer in different parts of her body. Although that definitely wasn’t what Big Ang was expecting to hear, she immediately made a plan to soon return to the doctor so she can figure out the best way to handle the cancer this time.
Ang, whose full name is Angela Raiola, first had to deal with cancer in March of this year when doctors found a lemon-sized tumor after she went to the doctor for serious neck pain. Her sister, Janine Detore, revealed that the tumor was determined cancerous on April 3, along with sharing that Big Ang would be undergoing surgery the following week. Big Ang took to Facebook to tell fans that she was “peaceful” before her surgery and promised that she wouldn’t be going anywhere as a result of the cancer, which she referred to as a “minor setback.”
Months after Big Ang’s doctors removed affected lump nodes from her throat, TMZ reports that she was cancer free in October. We can only imagine how difficult it was for her to hear that her cancer has come back, but we know she’ll fight it as much as she can. Our thoughts are with Big Ang.
