Alyssa posted, “Yesterday, my family suffered a terrifying and traumatic event,” the actress, 48, wrote via Instagram on Wednesday, August 18. “I was a passenger in a car my uncle Mitch was driving when he suffered a serious heart attack, resulting in a car crash. I am grateful to the people who stopped to help us. I’ll never be able to thank them enough for the care and attention they, along with the first responders, doctors, nurses, and staff at UCLA Medical Center paid to him and to me.”

“Uncle Mitch is such an important part of our family,” she added on her Instagram. “He’s with us every day, spending time with my children and present in every meaningful part of our lives. He’s still in the hospital, and we are unsure if he will recover.”

“Please, take this as your inspiration to get CPR certified,” she pleaded. “You don’t know when you’ll be called upon to save a life. The American Red Cross and many hospitals and other organizations offer regular classes. It’s such a small effort and can have a huge impact,” Alyssa concluded.

We are sending all the best to Alyssa‘s family and to her Uncle Mitch during this time.
