American actor, filmmaker, screenwriter, film director and occasional painter Sylvester Stallone’s half sister is fighting to battle advanced lung cancer. The “Rocky’ and also ‘Rambo’ star Stallone has in fact been at the bedside of her following the bad news, this according to a report.
The Hollywood star’s half sibling Toni Ann D’Alto who is fifty one years old is indeed in the advance stages this disease and is resting over at their mother Jackie’s Beverly Hills home, reports Britain’s Sunday Express.
