Denise Dowse, a dancer, has been battling for her life because of a virulent form of meningitis.
Over the weekend, Tracey Dowse, her admittedly intimate sister, shared the news with her family and friends, requesting assistance and prayers for the 90210 alum of Beverly Hills.
Denise, 64, is currently in the hospital in a coma triggered by a deadly drug, but she did not reveal when her sisters' health problems began.
Tracey told Page Six exclusively on Tuesday that her sister is still in a coma, but we hope she will get out of it soon.
Meningitis is a form of inflammation of the protective components that surround the brain and spinal cord. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, swelling is usually caused by a bacterial or viral infection of the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord, although injuries, cancer, drugs, and other forms of infections can also cause meningitis.
Only in severe cases does a person with meningitis experience enough brain damage to cause a coma, according to Medical News Today, indicating that the chances of that happening as a result of bacterial or viral meningitis are extremely small.
Tracey explained on Instagram that her doctors do not know when she will come out of the coma, making sure to note that the coma was not medically induced.
Tracey expressed her gratitude to her followers for their wonderful contributions, which they said were often positive and positive. She expressed her desire to keep her spirits the same.
Denise is a well-known actor and director who should have had many years ahead of her, according to her sister. Thoughts, prayers, and support are greatly appreciated.
Tracee Ellis Ross, a retired TV maven, was among the many social media users who flooded the post with inspiring remarks.
May the universe receive all it can muster and then more to heal, according to the Black-ish star. Sending prayers and love and love to this force of a woman who has so much love in so many people.
A long list of acting credits includes Insecure, Greys Anatomy, Criminal Minds, Bones, House, Monk, Law & Order, Gilmore Girls, Charmed, The Bernie Mac Show, Nip/Tuck, Moesha, Sister, ER, Step by Step, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Seinfeld, and Full House.
Both Rocket Power and Rugrats voiced Nickelodeon cartoon characters.
However, Tracey claimed that she is most honored of Remember Me: The Mahalia Jackson Story, a Denise-directed biographical drama that premiered at the 2022 Pan African Film Festival in April.
Tracey has won several of the best director awards at this year's film festivals.
