According to Mediaite, Melissa released a statement this weekend thanking Joan’s fans for their prayers and saying that her mother remains in “serious” condition. She added that Joan is “receiving the best treatment and care possible.”
Melissa also added a message of thanks to everyone who has offered tributes to the legendary comedienne.
“My mother would be so touched by the tributes and prayers that we have received from around the world… We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts as we pray for her recovery.”
