‘Modern Family’ star has kidney transplant

“Modern Family” star Sarah Hyland has revealed that she had a kidney transplant last month after suffering from kidney dysplasia. The disease has reportedly caused her a ton of pain and fatigue since she was 9-years-old.

The 21-year-old actress who’s famous for playing “Haley Dunphy,” received the kidney from her father who happened to be a perfect match.

She plans to recover during the summer and return back to work in-time for next season.

@Sarah_Hyland I want to say Thank You for sharing your story! My mom is in end stage renal failure & I totally know how scary it is.
