UPDATE THURSDAY 8:46 PM EST: Big Ang's family has already reached their fundraising goal! In only two days, the campaign raised far more than the $25,000 target!
According to the crowdfunding site, hundreds of generous donors gifted $36,941 for the lovely lady's treatment!
This is such sad news.
Last year, we learned that Big Ang's cancer has returned. And now, we're getting more bad news about her current treatment.
On Tuesday, the Mob Wives star's sister, Janine Detore, revealed that she has not been responding to her chemotherapy.
The VH1 alum's sibling created a GoFundMe page, discussing her current condition, writing:
"As you know my sister was diagnosed with stage 4 brain and lung cancer. Chemotherapy was started January 5 th. On January 26th 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.

The report stated Guzman, who escaped from prison back in July, had to leave his compound in the Mexican state of Sinaloa, citing:
On Tuesday, the actor revealed that he had temporarily stopped taking his HIV medication! It turns out that the 50-year-old had ditched his traditional medicine in the hopes of being cured south of the border!
The Two and a Half Men alum explained on The Dr. Oz Show that he wasn't afraid of running the risk of hurting his health, saying:
"I've been off my meds for about a week now. Am I risking my life? Sure. So what? I was born dead. That part of it doesn't phase me at all."
For those of you who are completely shocked by this bold move, the Anger Management star told the 55-year-old that he was receiving alternative treatment from a doctor in Mexico.
He said that Dr. Sam Chachoua — who is not licensed to practice in the U.S. — had been working on a vaccine for HIV, but did not discuss details about the process.
Instead, Dr. Oz shared an audio recording of a phone conversation he had with the physician, who said:
