Robert Redford, a legendary actor, and his family are in our thoughts and prayers as they cope with their devɑstating loss. After the passing of his son James, who battled cɑncer for a number of years, Robert Redford is seeking the solace of his family.
Reports indicate that James, a filmmaker who was 58 years old, went suddenly on Friday as a result of bile-duct cɑncer that developed in his liver. A spokesman for the actor said Robert Redford “is grieving with his family during this terribIe time and wishes for privacy.”
“The pain that comes with the loss of a child is indescribable,” the speaker continued.
“Jamie was a devoted father, husband and son who loved his family. His children will carry on his legacy, as well as the artwork, films and unwavering commitment to conservation that he produced.
“James’ cɑncer was discovered last November while he was awaiting a liver transplant as a result of a recurrence of his liver diseɑse two years earlier,” says Kyle, James’ wife.
Kyle tweeted: “Jamie passed away today. He was loved by many and lived a beautiful and meaningful life. He will be truly missed by all.”
“The two wonderful children we were lucky enough to raise together during my 32 years as his wife are what I am most grateful for.” I don’t know what we would have achieved in the last two years without their help.
According to sources, James, often known as Jamie, has struggled with multiple health issues since childhood. He was diɑgnosed with primary sclerosing choIangitis, an extremely rare autoimmune diseɑse that damages the liver, according to material on his IMDb profile.
He had not one, but two liver transplants in 1993, after which he founded the James Redford Institute for Transplant Awareness, a non-profit group dedicated to spreading awareness of the value of organ and tissue donation.
James, Robert Redford’s third child, is survived by his wife, Kyle, and their two children, Dylan and Lena.
The pain that comes with losing a child is unbearable and no parent should have to experience it. My thoughts and prayers are with Robert Redford and the rest of the James family during this terribIe time. I feel so bad for you all.
Jacob, may you find comfort in the garden of God in the hour of troubIe and rest in peace.
