[CUSTOM_PLAYER_BRIGHTCOVE "4739043302001" "371" "600"] As Angela "Big Ang" Raiola fights for her life, she can count on family, friends and her Mob Wives costars to be in her corner.
On Tuesday, Raiola's sister Janine Detore created a GoFundMe page seeking $25,000 for alternative cures since treatments for the VH1 star, who was hospitalized after stage-4 lung and brain cancer, have not been working.
In the days since, her costars on the reality show have taken to Twitter and Instagram in a show of support for the woman they call their "momma bear."

"This was a once in a lifetime wedding," Raiola, 55, tells PEOPLE of the nuptials held at the Angel Orensanz Foundation Center. "It was something out of a magazine. The flowers, the table setting, just the room itself. The feeling that I had. I can't even describe it. It was overwhelming."

Thirty years ago this week, Video Hits One began offering the too-old-for-MTV crowd a sensible alternative. That channel would eventually grow into the entity we know today as VH1, and with that name, it would nail that pop culture nostalgia sweet spot with series like Behind the Music, VH1 Storytellers and more.
But above all the VH1 hits, it was Pop-Up Video that captured the hearts and minds of a certain kind of media-addled, know-it-all geek. The series first exploded in 1994, and our culture of nostalgia and trivia obsession has only grown stronger in the Internet age. With a hat tip towards VH1's big 3-0, People spoke with Woody Thompson, co-creator of Pop-Up Video, about how this landmark series came to be.
