Tom Sizemore’s Family Prepares To Make ‘End Of Life’ Decision After Brain Aneurysm & Stroke

Tom Sizemore’s family has a difficult decision ahead of them.

Earlier this month, TMZ reported that the Saving Private Ryan actor collapsed in his Los Angeles residence around 2 a.m. after suffering a brain aneurysm. At the time, his manager, Charles Lago, told the outlet that someone eventually found the 61-year-old unconscious, before calling emergency medical services. The Hollywood Reporter later shared that the Point Break performer was “in critical condition and it’s a wait-and-see situation.” Now, his family is providing an update.

In a Monday statement released through Entertainment Tonight via Tom’s manager and the actor’s family, they gave insight into his state since suffering the life-threatening incident:

“In the early hours of Saturday, February 18, Tom Sizemore collapsed at his Los Angeles home and was transported to a hospital by Paramedics. He was found to be suffering from a brain aneurism [sic] that occurred as a result of a stroke. Since that day, Tom has remained in critical condition, in a coma and in intensive care.”

Doesn’t sound too good… If you’re not aware, a brain aneurysm occurs when a “bulge or ballooning in a blood vessel in the brain” ruptures, “causing bleeding into the brain (hemorrhagic stroke),” according to the Mayo Clinic. The statement continued:

“Today, doctors informed his family that there is no further hope and have recommended end of life decision. The family is now deciding end of life matters and a further statement will be issued on Wednesday.”

So that’s it… Once that “end of life” call is made by medical professionals, it means there’s pretty much no chance of recovery, and the patient is holding on because of life support and intensive care. We can’t imagine how his family is feeling right now.

The reps concluded their statement by thanking fans for their support through the “difficult” situation:

“We are asking for privacy for his family during this difficult time and they wish to thank everyone for the hundreds of messages of support, and prayers that have been received. This has been a difficult time for them.”

Our hearts are with the Sizemore family right now, as well as all of his loved ones. We will just have to wait until Wednesday when they release their statement concerning their final end of life decision.
