Big Ang throat tumor

Couples Therapy Season 6 Big Ang and Neil

We haven’t heard much from Angela “Big Ang” Raiola recently as the beloved reality star has been battling throat cancer. However, after opting for two major surgeries instead of chemotherapy, the Mob Wives scene-stealer is recovering well after doctors removed a tumor the size of a lemon from her throat.

Big Ang is rarely filmed for the VH1 series without an ever-present cigarette dangling from her giant painted lips, but that is no longer the case. Diagnosed in March, Big Ang immediately gave up the nasty habit cold turkey. She’s ready to be back in business, and her struggle with cancer, as well as relationship stresses with husband Neil Murphy, will be featured on the upcoming season of Couple’s Therapy

Mob Wives star Big Ang had surgery last week to remove a large tumor from her throat.  It was reportedly cancerous and now she is waiting to find out if they were able to remove all of the cancer during her surgery.  In the meantime, she’s resting up, thanking fans for their support and also enjoying a brand new grandchild! 

Angela took to Instagram to share her heartfelt thanks, “Hello my loves. THIS is what my first post on Instagram needs to be after my time away. I want to take a moment to thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart for all of your love, concern, thoughts, prayers, well wishes, and helpful notes from experiences from those of you who dealt with the same ordeal I’ve faced.”
