Robert Redford's son, James, dies of liver cancer at 58
LOS ANGELES – James Redford, a filmmaker, activist and son of actor Robert Redford, has died. Kyle said her husband’s liver disease returned two years ago and the cancer was discovered in November last year while he waited on a liver transplant. “We’re heartbroken,” his wife wrote about her husband, who was called Jamie. He expressed gratitude for a liver transplant that saved his life in an HBO documentary “The Kindness of Strangers” in 1999. He also established the James Redford Institute in 1995 for Transplant Awareness to raise money and distribute tools to increase awareness about the shortage of organ donors.
