The actress declared brain dead, but she wanted to live long enough to become an organ donor, so she stayed on life support. She has “long made the choice” to donate her organs, so doctors were keeping an eye on Heche to “determine” if it was safe to do so. 

Anne’s big heart and kind nature made an impression on everyone she met. She didn’t see making a difference for the better in the acceptance of who you love as her primary life’s work, despite the fact that it would have been a huge accomplishment for her, even without her extraordinary talent.

Her representative later told Us that the artificial respiration allowed her organs to stay healthy enough to donate while doctors decided who would get them.

 A representative for Heche stated, “Anne is legally dead according to California law.” There has been no decision to turn off life support, and her heart is still beating. So that the OneLegacy Foundation can find compatible donors, we must take this step.
