Modern Family Star Sarah Hyland Recovering From Kidney Transplant

Modern Family star Sarah Hyland may have looked healthy as a horse the past few years, but underneath the glowing exterior, her body was fighting for its life. The twenty-one-year-old has battled kidney dysplasia for her entire life, and she knew, at some point, she would need a new organ to survive. Luckily for Hyland, her father is a great man and more importantly, he was a match.

Speaking in the new issue of Seventeen, Hyland reveals she underwent the transplant procedure about a month ago, and thus far, everything seems to have gone as smoothly as possible. She’s recovering as expected and has found a new admiration for both her father and her boyfriend Matt Prokop. The latter has been organizing all her medications and running her to-and-from the doctor for all the required appointments and tests.

In addition to her Modern Family commitments, Hyland has already shot scenes for the upcoming films Gay Dude and April Apocalypse. If all continues progressing, there should be plenty of movies and television projects ahead for the wonderful actress.

Pop Blend sends out its sincerest well-wishes to Hyland as she attends more doctor’s appointments in the coming weeks and months. She might not have asked for this battle, but by all accounts, she’s fought it diligently and aggressively.
