Big Ang appeared on Dr. Oz this week to speak more in depth about her continuous battle with stage 4 brain and throat cancer. In this sneak peek of the interview on the Dr. Oz Show, Ang is barely able to keep it together while speaking with Dr. Oz and reveals that she has been overcome with depression. Already cutting her hair in the grim anticipation of chemotherapy, Ang admits “It’s destroying me, I can’t believe what I look like.”
She was first diagnosed with throat cancer which she originally believed to be strep throat. After her surgery, Ang thought she was home free and was even going to throw a party to celebrate but unfortunately that wasn’t the case. You can watch all of Ang’s interview with Dr. Oz here.
As her devastating battle is still ongoing , her family created a GoFundMe page in support of Angela and asks that you continue to keep her in your prayers, and her co-stars, like Karen Gravano, continue to voice their support in an effort to keep Ang’s spirits up.
