As Joan Rivers remains on life support, several celebrities she’s touched over her illustrious career are rallying for her to recover.
The 81-year-old comedian was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital on Thursday after she stopped breathing during a routine doctor’s visit for a throat procedure.
Within hours, doctors placed the “Fashion Police” host in an induced coma in order to further assess the damage, as it is still unclear how long she went without oxygen.
Rivers’ daughter, Melissa, arrived at the New York City medical center from Los Angeles to discuss treatment options with the staff. She is reportedly “in denial” over the seriousness of her mother’s condition.
“She still thinks everything is going to be OK. She is refusing to admit that a world might exist without her mother in it,” a source close to the Rivers family told the Daily News Saturday.
“Others that are close to Joan are starting to realize that the outcome they want is very unlikely,” the source added.
A slew of celebs took to Twitter to express their concerns, prayers and optimism for the Brooklyn-born funnywoman, who became a Hollywood mainstay after a 1965 appearance on “The Tonight Show,” to pull through.
