Actor David Cassidy From 'The Partridge Family' Was Just Placed In An Induced Coma

David Cassidy has been in poor health for more than a few years, but this week he took a turn for the worse.

The Partridge Family teen heartthrob, singer, and songwriter was rushed to a hospital in Florida on Thursday with severe kidney and liver failure. Doctors put him in a medically-induced coma to inhibit the damaging effects of multiple organ failure. Since then, he has been in and out of consciousness and is awaiting a liver transplant. His family has gathered at his bedside and doctors have reportedly told them to "prepare for the worst."

After a stumbling, forgetful performance onstage two years ago, some fans assumed he was struggling with alcohol again, but the truth was far worse. 

Cassidy told Dr. Phil he had dementia, just as his mother had before she passed.

Cassidy's fans have rallied online, reminiscing and hoping for the best:

And even more people had posters of the young heartthrob:
