The singer is very sick despite awakening from coma in hospital.
The world is sending their prayers to the family of David Cassidy this week, as he remains in hospital following multiple organ failure last week. He is now conscious following an induced coma, but reports suggest that his current prognosis does not look particularly good.

The 67-year-old has been described as being in 'critical condition' despite having regained consciousness, and while it is unclear what caused his organ failure, TMZ claim that he has had kidney failure and needs a liver transplant 'soon or he could die'.
David is at a hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in intensive care, having come round to his son Beau Cassidy, ex-wife Sue Shifrin and brother Patrick. 'He is conscious and surrounded by family and friends, nothing is imminent and we are taking it day by day', his publicist Jo-Ann Geffen told CNN over the weekend.
'The Partridge Family' star told People in February that he was retiring from touring to enjoy his life since being diagnosed with dementia, much like his mother and grandfather. 'I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming', he said. 'I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I've been without any distractions. I want to love. I want to enjoy life.'
The singer has suffered seriously with alcoholism in his life, something which has torn his family apart. However, as his health worsens, it seems there is something of a reunion for the family members which has been good for David.
'They are all reuniting in support of him. He was delighted to see them', a source told People. 'When his brother Patrick walked into the room, David lit up like a Christmas tree. There's been total resolution within the family. They will always be there for him.'
Unfortunately, according to the Sun, they have been told to 'prepare for the worst' and he is still drifting in and out of consciousness as he awaits that vital transplant.
