Early this year, Sarah underwent a kidney transplant operation. She had experienced kidney disease since she was a small child, and her father donated her the healthy kidney!
Since then, Sarah has worked with George Lopez’s “The Lopez Foundation,” which helps kids with kidney disease go to summer camp! These camps are able to tend to their specific medical needs, unlike normal summer camps.
Sarah Hyland was never able to go to summer camp as a kid due to her health restrictions, so it’s a cause close to her heart! It’s fabulous that he’s being applauded for her work!
Apparently Sarah Hyland is an even better actress than we thought, because the ‘Modern Family‘ star has been in a lot of pain recently due to a kidney disease she has had since childhood.
You would never know Sarah had this serious problem if you were watching her character Haley on the show.
After coming out about undergoing kidney surgery in April, Sarah dished that “I try and make it so that Haley is always sitting down. If you notice, she’s always sitting down a lot…or leaning and texting. When Haley walks up the stairs that’s like my work out for the week.”
Luckily for Sarah, her dad was a match to be Sarah’s organ donor and willingly gave up his kidney for his daughter.
Sarah also credits her boyfriend, actor Matt Prokop, for being extremely supportive through the whole process. Sarah said, “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.”
We are glad to hear that Sarah is now successfully on the road to recovery, and we hope to see Haley Dunphy doing a lot more standing in the future!
Last night the SAG (Screen Actor’s Guild) Awards aired on television and the fashion couldn’t have been more glamorous!
All the big stars turned up to walk the red carpet and watch the big winners.
Taking home the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series was Modern Family!
Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy), Julie Bowen (Claire Dunphy), and Sophia Vergara (Gloria Pritchett) were also nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Actor/Actress in a Comedy Series.
Ariel Winter, who plays Alex Dunphy, hit the red carpet looking all grown-up (just after her 14th birthday on Saturday!) in a knee length strapless dress. Ariel paired the gown with matching pointy pumps and long wavy locks.
What do you think of Ariel’s look? Does she look grown-up and glamorous? Or do you prefer her down-to-earth Alex Dunphy look?
