According to a statement from a representative, Anne Heche is on life support after getting a brain damage in a fiery crash a week ago, and it isn’t expected that she will survive.

In a statement issued Thursday night on behalf of her family and friends, it was stated that the actor, who is in a severe condition and is in a coma, is being maintained on life support in case she decides to donate her organs.

According to the statement, Heche, who is being treated at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital north of Los Angeles, has a “serious anoxic brain injury.” Such a damage is brought on by a persistent deficiency in oxygen to the brain.

The statement stated that “she is not expected to survive.” She has long opted to donate her organs, and doctors are keeping her on life support while they check to see if any of them are still functional.
