Robert Redford is looking for comfort from his family after the death of his son James, who fought cancer for a number of years.
According to reports, James, a 58-year-old filmmaker, passed away unexpectedly on Friday as a result of bile duct cancer that manifested in his liver.
According to a Robert Redford spokesman, the actor “is mourning alongside his family during this horrible 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 continue his legacy, as well as the works of art, films, and steadfast commitment to nature preservation that he produced.”
“James’s cancer was discovered in November of last year while he was awaiting a liver transplant as a result of the recurrence of his liver condition two years earlier,” according to Kyle, James’s wife.
Kyle tweeted: “Today Jamie passed away. He was loved by many people and lived a lovely, meaningful life. Everyone will sincerely miss him.”
“The two amazing kids that we were fortunate to raise together over the course of my 32 years as his wife are what I am most grateful for. I have no idea what we would have achieved over the previous two years without their assistance.”
James, often known as Jamie, has reportedly had a multitude of health issues since he was a small child. According to information on his IMDb biography, he was identified with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, a remarkably uncommon inflammatory disease that harms the liver.
In 1993, he had not one, but two liver transplants. As a result, he established the James Redford Institute for Transplant Awareness, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise public awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donation.
The two children Dylan and Lena as well as Robert Redford’s third kid James are still living.
No parent should ever have to go through the tremendous anguish that comes with losing a child. During this awful time, my thoughts and prayers are with Robert Redford and the rest of James’s family. I truly feel horrible for all of you.
James, may you rest in peace and find solace in the Lord’s garden in your hour of need.
