Grieving Sylvester Stallone's half-sister in hospital in critical condition
Washington, August 10 (ANI): Sylvester Stallone, who is still grieving following the death of his son Sage last month, has been dealt another blow as his half-sister Toni Ann Filiti is in critical condition in UCLA hospital, suffering from lung cancer.
Filiti, 48, has been living in Santa Monica with mom Jackie Stallone, 90, as she battled the disease, but was rushed to the hospital two weeks ago when her condition worsened.
"After losing my grandson, this has been too much to bear. Toni Ann is not doing well at all. She has lung cancer Stage 4, she has liver cancer, it has spread to her brain," Jackie told the New York Post.
"I am doing terrible after having my grandson go, then my daughter [critical] at 48 years old. It isn't easy. I don't know what to do. She has been in UCLA for two weeks. She's on IVs to stay alive. She is on all kinds of IVs to eat.
"The doctors don't think she will improve. What can you do? They have done everything; she even entered an experiment. I would like to bring her home," Jackie said.
Jackie, 90, says the family are praying for Toni Ann to make a recovery but she know it's unlikely.
"She is conscious and responsive sometimes, but not really. What we need is a miracle. I still believe there are miracles, it is the only thing that keeps you going. I always think some miracle will happen, and she will wake up and this is all a bad dream. I want her with us until the last hour. She looks beautiful lying there. But her condition is critical."
Sylvester is currently in France with his wife, Jennifer Flavin, and three daughters as he struggles to cope with the loss of Sage, who was found dead in his Los Angeles home July 13 at the age of just 36. (ANI)
