Following the Emmy-winning actor's horrific car accident last Friday, Anne Heche's family and friends hoped for a miracle. 

It didn't come, and her family is making the difficult decision to remove her from life support

she was declared brain dead. 

She is on a ventilator until it is determined whether any organs that were not damaged in the crash 

subsequent fire can be donated.

"We want to thank everyone for their well-wishes and prayers for Anne's recovery, 

 as well as the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses who cared for Anne at West Hills Hospital's Grossman Burn Center."
