Sylvester Stallone - Sylvester Stallone's Sister Is In Hospital

Sylvester Stallone's half-sister is in critical condition in hospital.

The 66-year-old actor is still grieving following the death of his son Sage last month, and now he has been dealt another blow after Toni Ann Filiti - who has lung and liver cancer - was rushed to the UCLA hospital two weeks ago when her condition worsened.

Toni Ann, 48, had been living in Santa Monica with mother Jackie Stallone and Jackie admits the outlook is not good.

She told the New York Post newspaper: ''After losing my grandson, this has been too much to bear. Toni Ann is not doing well at all. She has lung cancer Stage 4, she has liver cancer, it has spread to her brain.

''I am doing terrible after having my grandson go, then my daughter [critical] at 48 years old. It isn't easy. I don't know what to do. She has been in UCLA for two weeks. She's on IVs to stay alive. She is on all kinds of IVs to eat.

''The doctors don't think she will improve. What can you do? They have done everything; she even entered an experiment. I would like to bring her home.''

Jackie, 90, says the family are praying for Toni Ann to make a recovery but she know it's unlikely.

She said: ''She is conscious and responsive sometimes, but not really. What we need is a miracle. I still believe there are miracles; it is the only thing that keeps you going. I always think some miracle will happen, and she will wake up and this is all a bad dream. I want her with us until the last hour. She looks beautiful lying there. But her condition is critical.''

Sylvester is currently in France with his wife, Jennifer Flavin, and three daughters as he struggles to cope with the loss of Sage, who was found dead in his Los Angeles home July 13 at the age of just 36.
