Anne Heche will be taken off of life support Sunday afternoon, a spokesperson for the actor told NBC News.
Organ recipients have been identified and surgeons are ready to perform the implants once Heche has been taken off life support, the spokesperson said.
Multiple organs will be transplanted, but it is not known at this time which ones.
Although Heche was declared brain-dead on Friday, a week after she crashed her car into a home in Los Angeles, the actor was kept on life support so that her organs can be donated.
“While Anne is legally dead according to California law, her heart is still beating, and she has not been taken off life support so that One Legacy can see if she is a match for organ donation,” Heche’s spokesperson said in a statement at the time.
