If you’re a Mob Wives fan, chances are one of the big (literally) draws to the show is the larger than life Big Ang. Her fun-loving personality and no nonsense personality make for entertaining television, and she somehow remains in all of her cast mates’ good graces even when they want to wring each other’s necks. She can even complain about “rats” without making the word (or the backwards concept) feel like nails on the chalkboard.
Unfortunately, Ang is facing some very hard times. Last year, the reality star underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in her throat. After getting a clean bill of health, Ang received the disheartening news that her cancer had returned, this time metastasizing in her lungs and brain with a stage 4 diagnosis. Not surprisingly, she’s doing everything she can to combat the disease, especially since her tumors are not responding to the latest rounds of chemotherapy.
This is heartbreaking. We all watched as Big Ang and her husband Neil overcame so much on this season of Couples Therapy, but now it looks like the Mob Wives star has another battle ahead of her, for the second time. Back in April, Ang learned that she had cancer after doctors discovered a tumor in her neck. But then a few months later (and after undergoing surgery), they determined that Big Ang was cancer free.
Sadly, that is no longer the case. Instead, during a recent check-up, doctors had to break the news to Ang that she is once again, dealing with cancer. However, this time around it seems to be worse. Definitely not the news that Ang wanted right before the holidays, but we all know that she is one tough cookie. How is she handling the news?
