Report: David Cassidy's Condition Has Deteriorated; Transplants No Longer Viable

by VVN Music

TMZ has reported that David Cassidy's condition has deteriorated to the point where he has been put in the intensive care unit and the option of transplants is now off the table.

Cassidy was taken to a Florida hospital earlier in the week suffering from multiple organ failure.  Most reports say that his kidneys had failed and needed transplants while a few others say that his liver is in the same condition.

According to TMZ, Cassidy is now on a breathing tube and a source has told them "There's really no issue anymore for a transplant. It's futile."

Family appears to be by his side.

There is no word on the reason for the organ failure.  Cassidy has a long history with alcohol and, earlier this year, stated that he was suffering from dementia.

Beau Cassidy has posted the following on Facebook:

Unfortunately David is very sick. However he is getting the support he needs, surrounded by the people he loves most.

Thank you very much for your love and concern that you have expressed in your messages to him.

Beau Cassidy.
