Anne Heche wishes to donate her organs

“It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she’s being kept on life support to determine if any are viable,” the representative informed People in the statement.

This information, as well as the statement has already been reported by TMZ, which had reported the aforementioned car accident in which the actress, according to this same media, was found under the influence of cocaine and fentanyl, according to information from a toxicology test that the Los Angeles Police Department would have practiced.

In a statement, Heche’s family said through a representative that she had suffered “a severe anoxic brain injury” and was now being kept on life support to determine whether her organs were viable for donation.

The family said it had “long been her choice” to donate her organs.

“We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital,” the statement read.


Heche crashed her car into a house in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles, near her own home, at speed on Friday. The collision caused a fire that took an hour to extinguish, according to reports.

The occupant of the house escaped without injury; neighbours told Fox News that the car had ploughed right through the house.

“The windows were broken, so I opened the back door of the car. [Heche] answered and said she was not OK, so that was tough. I know they didn’t get her out of the car until the fire was pretty much put out.”

Anne Heche, 53, is known for her work on films including the remake of Psycho, Donnie Brasco and Cedar Rapids.
