Terminally Ill Cancer Blogger Tragically Dies ONE DAY Before Her Dream Wedding

no title

This poor woman!!

Anna Swabey knew there was little hope for her to live a full life after she'd been battling a terminal illness for many years. Unfortunately, her story gets even sadder now that the cancer-suffering 25-year-old passed away just ONE DAY shy of her dream wedding.

Swabey — who had been battling a terminal brain tumor and was the writer of an influential cancer blog called Inside My Head — died on Friday, not even 24 hours before 160 of her closest confidants were supposed to see her wed Andy Bell, her boyfriend of ten months.

Bell — who knew of Swabey's condition but wanted to marry the love of his life anyways — met Anna exactly a month after she had been diagnosed with the terminal brain tumor last January.

At one point a few months ago in an essay for Marie Claire, Anna revealed that the tumor made things very, very difficult for her with Andy, writing:

"I knew halfway through my third date with Andy that I was going to break his heart. Not because I was going to cheat on him or dump him, but because I knew I was going to die."

We have no words.

But it gets worse…

Filed under: TV NewsPerezTVHealthCancerDr. OzScary!Reality TV

Honestly, this is difficult to watch.

As fun and funny as Angela 'Big Ang' Raiola has been on Mob Wives, the 55-year-old is now consumed with something far different in her life.

The reality TV star is battling stage 4 lung and brain cancer, and while the prognosis may not be very good right now, she's at least strong enough to publicly take it on and confront the sickness.

On Tuesday's episode of Dr. Oz, she candidly discusses cancer and her reaction to it, saying:

"Sometimes I feel I'm gonna be fine, and sometimes I just don't think I am…"

See the teaser (above) for the show, which airs in syndication Tuesday.

Filed under: DrugsSad SadHealthCharityMedicineCancerSickReality TV

Oh no!

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. We were advised that she would start immunotherapy the following week."

Oh no.

While she mentioned Ang isn't on the brink of death, she did say that the TV personality is really struggling with her breathing, and is in an incredible amount of pain.

So, the bar owner's sister suggested cannabis oil to reduce the pain. Unfortunately, the product is pretty pricey, which is why the famous family turned to crowdfunding. Janine wrote:
