A week after being admitted to the hospital with severe burn injuries sustained in a car accident, actress Anne Heche’s family has stated that she is still in a critical condition and “not expected to survive.” Heche’s family confirmed on Thursday that the August 5 automobile crash that resulted in an Emmy nomination for best actor had left the actress with a severe brain injury.

Since last Friday, when a car the 53-year-old actor was driving collided with a house and caught fire in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles, she has been recovering in the hospital.
Since it “has long been her decision to give her organs,” Heche is still being kept alive while the viability of each organ is being assessed by the medical team.

“Anne had a big heart and her giving nature made an impression on everyone she encountered. More than her exceptional talent, she considered it her life’s purpose to inspire kindness and joy, especially by promoting acceptance of who you love. The statement read, “She will be remembered for her bold honesty and greatly missed for her light.”

We want to express our gratitude to everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Anne’s recovery, as well as to the great nurses and hardworking staff who looked after Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at the hospital in West Hills. “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche sustained a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She isn’t anticipated to live.

Heche became well-known  portraying Marley Love and Vicky Hudson in the soap series Another World. She appeared in several popular films, including Volcano, Donnie Brasco, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Six Days, Seven Nights, and Return to Paradise.
