Sad news for the real-life family featured in The Fighter.
Alice Ward, the mother of Micky Ward (the man The Fighter was based on), has been put on life support after suffering cardiac arrest. She stopped breathing for more than half an hour.
Micky and his brothers and sisters rushed to the hospital to be by her side. Thankfully, she’s doing much better.
This quote was pulled from one family member’s facebook page:
"She was dead for almost an hour and today she's … doing so well. The nurse said she's never seen anything like this in the eight years she's been working (at the hospital.)"
We’re so glad to hear she’s doing better!!
