Colton Haynes is being ‘forced to say goodbye’ to sick mother

Actor Colton Haynes revealed his mother is in need of a liver transplant — and she doesn’t have much time left.

“The doctors suggested that we now focus on my mother’s quality of life rather than quantity of life. It’s heartbreaking,” he wrote, along with a photo of her in hospice care. “My strong mother has always been the anchor of this family and our best friend. Now we’re being forced to say goodbye to her.”

Haynes, 29, said his mother, Dana, has been in and out of the hospital since January after her liver and kidneys failed her. He said she is in need of a new liver, but doesn’t have that much time left to wait for one.

The “Teen Wolf” star, who wed celebrity florist Jeff Leatham in October 2017, spoke positively of his mom’s bubbly personality — even in times of hardship.

“Even when her liver & kidney doctors gave us the worst news you could get, my mom looked at us and said, ‘The best thing to do in these situations is to laugh.’ She then chuckled so loud you could hear it to the other end of the hospital,” he wrote. “That’s my mom. Shes funny, bull headed, & strong.”

The Kansas native has shared multiple posts to his social media accounts since his January, including a post that called his mother his “voice of reason,” “angel” and “best friend.”

My mom, Dana, always loves to laugh. Even when her liver & kidney doctors gave us the worst news you could get, my mom looked at us and said, “The best thing to do in these situations is to laugh.” She then chuckled so loud you could hear it to the other end of the hospital. That’s my mom. Shes funny, bull headed, & strong. My mom has been in and out of the hospital since January. After multiple tests we found out she actually has advanced cirrhosis of the liver & kidney failure. A diagnosis that can be cured with a liver transplant.. however..that bad news I mentioned before was that she doesn’t have that much time to wait for a new liver. The doctors suggested that we now focus on my mother’s quality of life rather than quantity of life. It’s heartbreaking. My strong mother has always been the anchor of this family and our best friend. Now we’re being forced to say goodbye to her. So with that horrible news from “Dr. Doom” (a name my mom came up for him) my family has set up steps to make mom comfortable. We set up in home hospice care so she can be home with her boyfriend, Gary, and her beloved cat, Fasa. Hospice care is covered by my moms insurance 100%. As well as nurses visits on a “need be” basis. A personal in home nurse that can be there 24/7, however, is not covered and would need to be paid out of pocket. My siblings and family are spread out around the country and world. We’ve been taking turns flying out when we can to help but it’s not enough. My brother wanted to do his part to help with the expense of hiring a full time nurse & guess what…the gofundme goal has been reached to pay for Amity Home Care in Hemet California! Now that the goal has been reached…every single penny we raise over the goal from today on will be donated to the American Liver Foundation to help others who are going through this horrible disease. It would mean the world to my family & I if we could make a massive donation to this incredible organization. Thank y’all for listening & sending all the love to my beautiful momma. Donation link in my bio ❤❤❤

On Feb. 7, he shared a photo of his mother Dana when she was younger with the caption: “My beautiful mom: I love you more than anything in the world. I will always be by your side in this lifetime & until the end of time.”

In Haynes’ Instagram bio, he shared a link to a GoFundMe page for his mother asking for funds to pay for her medical and travel costs. It’s already surpassed the $ 10,000 goal with $ 12,700 as of Wednesday.

Haynes said in an interview with Out Magazine in 2016 that he was told his father William committed suicide in 2004 because of the actor’s sexual orientation.

William was married seven times before splitting from Dana, and he never maintained a relationship with Colton.

“I’m the last person in the world who would say, ‘Oh, my dad—pity me,’” Haynes said. “But I was told that my dad killed himself because he found out I was gay. So, of course, I lost it and was like, ‘How could you say something like that?’ And no one will ever really know the truth. But my brother and my mom went to pick up my dad’s stuff, and the only picture on his fridge was my eighth-grade graduation picture. So I was just like, F–k.”
