Big Ang Reveals on ‘Mob Wives’ She Wasn’t Ready to Die: “I Am Not Done Here”

“I am scared, what stage cancer is it? What are the results going to be?,” Ang, who had already had surgery to remove a tumor from her throat, says after learning she’d need an operation on her lungs, too.
Among one of the most heart-wrenching moments, however, was the 55-year-old telling the cameras she isn’t ready to die, mostly because she needs more time with her family.
“All I keep thinking of now is my grandchildren and my kids,” she says before entering the hospital for surgery. “Am I ever going to see them again? I am the glue that holds this family together.”

She adds, “You know I did a lot in my life, I lived a full life but I am not done here, I have got to be around as I want to see my grandchildren.”
Ang left behind two children, A.J. and Raquel, six grandchildren, and her estranged husband Neil, whom she was mad at in this episode for missing a very important doctor’s appointment.
“Neil makes me so angry at times, but he is right, I am not Wonder Woman,” she reveals. “I am scared, I am going through all of this with my health and I could use his help, even though I hate to admit it.”
Later, after getting the disheartening diagnosis, the other Mob Wives take Ang out for a girls’ night at a drawing class to get her mind off things.
