Modern Family star Sarah Hyland, may look like she has it all – brains, beauty and a kick-*ss TV series, but in a recent interview with Seventeen Magazine, the 21-year-old actress opens up about a life-long illness that nearly took her life.
Hyland, who has been battling kidney dysplasia for years, was recently forced to go under the knife to receive a kidney transplant that would save her life. The kidney was donated by Hyland’s father Edward James Hyland and Sarah says that the tremendous support of her family, coupled with the successful surgery, has given her a whole new perspective on life.
You know that family is always going to be there for you—no matter what. My dad gave me a freaking’ kidney!… But its also the families that you create outside of your family. And you really find out what kind of people you’re friends with. It was just amazing, and it really opened my eyes to see who’s there for me and who’s not.
One of the folks who was there for Sarah throughout her illness was her actor boyfriend, Matt Prokop.
He helps me with my medication and takes me to doctor appointments and all the stuff that I need to do to take care of myself. Any other 21-year-old guy would not be there, I guarantee it… I am one of the luckiest people in the world to have him be there for me.
Aw, how sweet! Having a good support system by her side was undoubtedly one of the most important parts of her recovery. Sarah concluded her interview with a simple statement, “I have a second chance at life, not a lot of people get that.”
