Mob Wives fan-favorite Angela "Big Ang" Raiola is struggling with cancer— and her estranged husband, Neil Murphy, has abandoned her in her time of need.

"I felt like he never stepped up to the plate, so I was done with it," the 55-year-old grandmother tearfully told Dr. Mehmet Oz on Tuesday afternoon.

"Now, it's too late. I would rather be by myself. I would rather be alone."

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, chemotherapy treatments haven't been helping the 55-year-old grandmother of six, who was diagnosed with stage four brain and lung cancer just months after doctors found a tumor in her throat.

The couple separated in December, Raiola told Radar last month, adding that Murphy "doesn't support her."

"I just felt like Neil doesn't do the right thing," she said.

Now, the reality star told Dr. Oz, she's feeling "depressed."

"I can't make sense of this," she said through the tears. "I thought that was it, I was done. You hear cancer and right away you think you're going to die."

Raiola was first hospitalized in April, when doctors removed a giant tumor from her throat. She thought she had beaten the disease, but was told the cancer had returned and spread in December.

"It's destroying me," she said.
