Nan Kemper’s Failing Health

She’s the one and only grande dame, queen of the New York’s high society. Socialite extraordinaire, Nan Kemper’s health has been failing as of late.

A family friend confirmed to me yesterday that the socialite superstar, 74, had been in a medically induced coma but is now recovering.

She was admitted to intensive care at New York Hospital and placed on a respirator. A call left with her answering service was not immediately returned yesterday.

Kempner has recently been in declining health and breathes with the aid of an oxygen tank. In her 30 years of heading up Memorial Sloan-Kettering benefits with pal Pat Buckley, she helped raise a staggering $75 million for the cancer hospital.

Thoughts and prayers, Nan.
