Jimmy Killeen was at his St. Louis home on Sunday when he "unexpectedly and for unknown reasons" collapsed, according to a CaringBridge site set up on his behalf.

Following the incident, Jimmy, 33, was rushed to Barnes-Jewish hospital in St. Louis, where it was determined that he had suffered a "major brain bleed," the page stated.

Doctors immediately took action, performing surgery on Jimmy before moving him to the neuro-ICU, according to the page.
