‘Sylvester Stallone’ has to endure more tragedy as his half sister has lost her battle with lung cancer just weeks after his son Sage had been found dead. This is second heartache in the matter of weeks as he is now grieving for Toni-Ann Filiti, who succumbed to lung and liver cancer.
The forty eight year old did die on Sunday night at their mother Jackie Stallone’s house, after she did decide to not stay in the hospital and spend her final days at home. A family source tol Radar: ‘
She passed away last night and it was somewhat expected. After being in the ICU she decided she wanted to die in the house so she could spend time with her family.’
Ninety year old Jackie had told the New York Post that she was hoping for a miracle.
‘She is conscious and responsive sometimes, but not really,’ she said. ‘What we need is a miracle. I still believe there are miracles; it is the only thing that keeps you going. Lost her fight for life: Toni Ann on her wedding day in 1990; she succumbed to lung and liver cancer last night
‘I always think some miracle will happen, and she will wake up and this is all a bad dream. I want her with us until the last hour. She looks beautiful lying there. But her condition is critical.’
And she said that the loss was hard to cope with, coming so soon after the loss of Sage, 36.
‘I am doing terrible after having my grandson go, then my daughter [critical] at 48 years old. It isn’t easy. I don’t know what to do.’
