Raiola has been fighting brain and lung cancer, having been first diagnosed with throat cancer last year.
In December, she learned that despite undergoing surgery to battle the disease, it had also spread to her lungs and brain.
At this time that is a false rumor. I am here with the entire family and all her friends and they ask for your continued support and prayers. We will keep everyone updated.
