Colton Haynes Reveals His Mom's Declining Health - Read His Heartbreaking Message

Colton Haynes has revealed the devastating news that his mom’s health is declining and he and his family are getting ready to say goodbye to her.

The 29-year-old actor says that his mom Dana has been in and out of the hospital since January due to liver and kidney failure. Instead of trying to extend her days, the doctors suggested improving the quality of her life for the days she has left.

“My mom, Dana, always loves to laugh. Even when her liver & kidney doctors gave us the worst news you could get, my mom 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, bull headed, & strong,” Colton wrote in a post on Instagram.

“My mom has been in and out of the hospital since January. After multiple tests we found out she actually has advanced cirrhosis of the liver & kidney failure. A diagnosis that can be cured with a liver transplant.. 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 quantity of life. It’s heartbreaking,” Colton said.

He added, “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.”

“So with that horrible news from ‘Dr. Doom’ (a name my mom came up for him) my family has set up steps to make mom comfortable. 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 moms insurance 100%,” Colton continued. “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 turns flying out when we can to help but it’s not enough. My brother wanted to do his part to help with the expense of hiring a full time 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 disease. 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. Donation link in my bio ❤❤❤.”

    Sad to see them go, daily Broccoli soup is supposed to be beneficial and if I’d known with my mother’s bowel cancer things might have been different. My best wishes.
