Poor Colton Haynes.
The Arrow star shared the sad news on Tuesday that his mother, who has been in and out of the hospital since January, was diagnosed with “advanced cirrhosis of the liver& kidney failure.”
And unfortunately it’s too late for a liver transplant. Colton shared 😛 TAGEND
“The doctors suggested that we now focus on my mother’s quality of life rather than quantity of life. It’s heartbreaking. My strong mother has always been the anchor of this family and our best friend. Now we’re being forced to say goodbye to her.”
My mom, Dana, always loves to chuckle. Even when her liver& kidney physicians gave us the worst news you could get, my mommy looked at us and said, “The best thing to do in these situations is to laugh.” She then chuckled so loud you could hear it to the other end of the hospital. That’s my mom. Shes funny, policeman headed,& strong. My mom has been in and out of the hospital since January. After multiple exams we found out she actually has advanced cirrhosis of the liver& kidney failure. A diagnosis that can be cured with a liver transplanting .. however..that bad news I mentioned before was that she doesn’t have that much time to wait for a new liver. The doctors suggested that we now focus on my mother’s quality of life rather than sum of life. It’s heartbreaking. My strong mom has always been the anchor of this family and our best friend. Now we’re being forced to say goodbye to her. So with that horrible news from “Dr. Doom”( a name my mama came up for him) their own families has set up steps to construct mommy comfy. We set up in home hospice care so she can be home with her boyfriend, Gary, and her beloved cat, Fasa. Hospice care is covered by my mommies insurance 100%. As well as nurses visits on a “need be” basis. A personal in home nurse that can be there 24/7, however, is not covered and would need to be paid out of pocket. My siblings and family are spread out around the country and world. We’ve been taking turnings flying out when we can to help but it’s not enough. My friend wanted to do his part to help with the expense of hiring a full day nurse& guess what…the gofundme goal has been reached to pay for Amity Home Care in Hemet California! Now that the goal has been reached…every single penny we raise over the goal from today on will be donated to the American Liver Foundation to help others who are going through this horrible illnes. It would mean the world to my family& I if we could make a massive donation to this incredible organization. Thank y’all for listening& sending all the love to my beautiful momma.
