Olympic gold medalist, Mary Lou Retton, is fighting for her life from pneumonia according to her family.

The 55 year old former gymnast is currently unable to breath on her own and in the ICU says her daughter.  

Apparently the former gymnast does not have insurance and her daughter has asked for the public’s help in paying her medical bills. 

Retton became a household name after the 1984 Olympics when she scored perfect ’10’ scores on the vault and floor and an the all-around gold.

Retton’s daughter asked for not only financial support for mother, but also for prayers.
