The "Arrow" star posted about the news on Instagram on Friday evening and wrote, "Today I lost my best friend, the love of my life...my momma. Words can't express how incredible this woman was. I have so many things to say but I'm in a state of shock. I will always love you, momma. RIP my angel."
Earlier this year, Colton opened up about his mom's declining health in a social media post and revealed that his mother had advanced cirrhosis of the liver and was in kidney failure. As it turned out, Dana had been in and out of the hospital since January.
The star wrote, "After multiple tests, we found out she actually has advanced cirrhosis of the liver & kidney failure. A diagnosis that can be cured with a liver transplant.. however..that bad news I mentioned before was that she doesn't have that much time to wait for a new liver. The doctors suggested that we now focus on my mother's quality of life rather than quantity of life. It's heartbreaking. My strong mother has always been the anchor of this family and our best friend. Now we're being forced to say goodbye to her." he shared online.
Haynes said his brother, Clinton Haynes, had set up a GoFundMe page to pay for any out of pocket costs. (ANI)
