Casey Kasem Near Death

Posted: Updated:
As the battle surrounding Casey Kasem brought his relatives into the courtroom again Friday, the iconic radio host's health is declining, and his family is preparing to say goodbye.

Kasem "won't be with us much longer," said Danny Deraney, the rep for the "American Top 40" host's daughter, Kerri Kasem.

His family is gathering at St. Anthony Hospital in Washington, where the ailing 82-year-old was in critical condition as of Thursday, according to the hospital.

His son, Mike Kasem, traveled from Singapore to be with his father, and Kasem's brother flew in from Detroit. Kasem suffers from Lewy body dementia, which has no cure.
