The family and friends of legendary actor Charles Bronson are gathering together after THE DIRTY DOZEN star was given only days to live.

DEATH WISH star Brosnan has been fighting Alzheimer's Disease for the past two years, and suffered organ failure earlier this month (AUG03).

Doctors tending to the 81-year old have told his family to prepare for the worst and say their last goodbyes to the star.

A relative tells British tabloid The Sun, "(The Alzheimer's) is heartbreaking. He doesn't know he was an actor, let alone a big star."

The GREAT ESCAPE actor's wife KIM is now making final preparations to bring him home to die as he requested.

A friend adds, "Charlie's wife Kim promised him she would honour his wish to let him die with dignity."
