Modern Family's Sarah Hyland has life changing surgery

Sarah Hyland, who portray's Haley Dunphy on ABC's highly successful show Modern Family revealed today that she's had life changing surgery in April. Apparently she's suffered from kidney disease since an early age but had to wait until it had progressed before she could undergo a kidney transplant. Her father donated a kidney to the 21 year old. She's endured a very serious disease for someone who plays such a comedic role as the ditzy, older daughter of Claire and Phil Dunphy, played by Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell respectively.

Sarah must now take medication to prevent rejection of the kidney.

Based on Modern Family's success, I know I am one of millions who wish Sarah continued good health in her recovery from surgery and in the future.
