Actress Sarah Hyland of Modern Family fame has certainly seen the worst of life and has still managed to get out of it with a smiling face. It is no secret anymore as to how the actress went through a kidney transplant that involved being gifted a kidney from her brother Ian Hyland.
It's amazing how two years have now passed by and fortunately, no complications have occurred except minor issues with endometriosis. And on this special occasion of completion of two years, Hyland wrote in an Instagram post, "2 years ago today my precious little brother gave me the gift of life. Thank you for not only giving me your f--king kidney but for everything else you do. I love you so much @thehotterhyland."
"happy Kidneyversary!!!!" she adds.
The actress previously shared that she had some hesitations about receiving a kidney from her brother, especially since the last transplant from her father was unsuccessful. "When a family member gives you a second chance at life, and it fails, it almost feels like it's your fault. It's not. But it does," she revealed in December 2018. "For a long time, I was contemplating suicide, because I didn't want to fail my little brother like I failed my dad."
But being in a poor state of health left her with no choice. So she and Ian went under the knife in September.
Recently, the actress also confirmed her engagement with long-time boyfriend, Wells Adams, who was with her throughout all this time.
