Big Ang — who’s real name is Angela Raiola — has turned to fans to ask for help while she continues to battle stage 4 lung and brain cancer just one week after her husband revealed she's "not doing well."
On Feb. 2, the Mob Wives star’s sister, Janine Detore, set up a GoFundMe page, which she hopes will raise $25,000 for cannabis oil to help with the reality star's pain.

“On Jan. 26, the doctor reviewed her CT scan and informed us that the treatment was not working, and in fact one tumor grew larger and the other tumors had no change. We were advised that she would start immunotherapy the following week,” Janine wrote.
She continued, “This is why I am putting up this GoFundMe to try to help my sister to get this oil to help her at least be pain-free. Angela cannot function to work anymore. I'm not sure that it will work but I'm praying. We all thank you in advance for your prayers and kind wishes. Help Big Ang fight her BIGGEST BATTLE.”
