“Beverly Hills, 90210” actress Denise Dowse is in the hospital fighting for her life, her sister shared in an Instagram post.
Dowse, 64, is hospitalized in a coma fighting severe meningitis. Doctors do not know when she will wake up since it was “not medically induced.”
Tracey Dowse, Denise's sister, took to the “Insecure” star's Instagram to announce her medical condition on Sunday.
“As many of you have seen, my posts have been positive and up lifting. I am trying to keep my spirits up and support those who need it,” the actress’ sister wrote. “As many of you know I am a private person. So this is hard for me.
“I am requesting support and prayers be offered me and my sister, and my only immediate family @denisedowse,” she noted. “She is currently in the hospital in a coma brought on by a virulent form of meningitis. Her doctors do not know when she will come out of the coma as it was not medically induced.”
