Anne Heche will be removed from life support on Sunday, TMZ has learned, as organ recipients have been identified and surgeons are ready to remove and then implant them.
Organ donations are considered one of the most sacred forms of medical procedures…doctors treat the organ donor with reverence and respect, even if they are unaware of the procedure.
We are told Anne will be taken off life support early Sunday afternoon…after which the procedure will begin.
Sources connected to Anne confirm to TMZ that several organs will be transplanted, although they choose not to reveal details.
Anne was declared brain dead Friday … which in California means the person died, despite remaining on life support with a beating heart to keep their organs strong.
As you now know, Anne was in a terrible car accident last Friday, when she drove into a house at high speed… the car caught fire and she was badly burned.
It is protocol under the circumstances of Anne’s death for the LA County Coroner to conduct an autopsy.
Our sincere thanks to
