Comedienne Joan Rivers continues to fight for her life, as the 81-year-old performer is reportedly on life support.

TMZ reports that Rivers is being kept alive by machines, and that her family will have to decide soon whether to keep her on life support. The family remain hopeful that even without life support, she can recover on her own.

On Thursday, Aug. 28, Joan was rushed to the hospital after she reportedly stopped breathing during a throat procedure. She was initially listed in critical condition and placed in a medically induced coma.

Joan daughter, Melissa Rivers, released the following statement after her mother’s hospitalization: “I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”

We continue to hope for the best for Joan and her family.
