Big Ang Says She’s Depressed About Her Cancer

Big Ang is speaking candidly on her battle with stage-four cancer of the brain and lungs.

According to the Mob Wives star whose condition is said to be worsening, she’s at times optimistic about her condition but sometimes gets depressed.
The New York Daily News reports:

Reality TV star Angela “Big Ang” Raiola says she veers between hope and depression as she fights stage-four brain and lung cancer.

Angela Raiola, part of the VH1 series “Mob Wives” and its spinoffs, said in a tearful interview airing Tuesday on “The Dr. Oz Show” that her family is her support and her reason to keep going.

“I look at my kids and my grandchildren and I know how much they need me,” Raiola told Dr. Mehmet Oz, host of the syndicated TV series.

The mother of two and grandmother of six has undergone several surgeries since she was diagnosed last year with throat and lung cancer.

She said she was twice declared cancer-free, only to see it return and spread. Radiation and chemotherapy have failed to check it, and her doctors are switching to what Oz called an advanced approach aimed at boosting her body’s immune system.

Raiola told Oz she can’t help feeling depressed at times.

Sometimes I feel I’m gonna be fine, and sometimes I just don’t think I am,” said Raiola, who lives with her daughter, son-in-law and their three children on New York’s Staten Island.

Poor Ang, stay encouraged.
