Luke Perry’s Family Made The Decision to Take Him Off Life Support
After suffering a massive stroke and being rushed to a Burbank hospital last week, a source close to Luke Perry’s family said he “wasn’t doing well.”
According to Us Weekly, the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum was immediately placed under heavy sedation in order to give his brain the opportunity to heal. “Luke’s loved ones were hoping they’d pull him out of it after 48 hours or so,” the source added. “But he never recovered. It was devastating.”
Five days later, his family — including his fiancée, Wendy Madison Bauer — made the difficult decision to take him off life support.
Later that day, Luke’s agent announced the news that Wendy was at the actor’s bedside along with his children Jack, 21, and Sophie, 18, ex-wife Rachel “Minnie” Sharp, to whom he was married from 1993 to 2003, and other close family members and friends.
We love you, Luke.
