Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland Graces the Cover of Seventeen Magazine

June 6, 2012 10:07 am

While she may leave you in stiches on “Modern Family“, actress Sarah Hyland opens up about her real life surgery in the June/July issue of  Seventeen Magazine.

Sarah had a kidney transplant last April and expressed to Seventeen how lucky she is.

” I have a second chance at life, not a lot of people get that,” Hyland said.

The 21-year-old actress tells seventeen about her supportive boyfriend, actor Matt Prokop, in the time of her medical crisis. Sarah raves about the nurse qualities in Prokop, as he has accompanied her to appointments and continues to  help her with her medication.

“Any other 21-year-old guy would not be there, I guarantee it. I am one of the luckiest people in the world to have him be there for me.”

Through the stressful and scary times, Sarah  certainly seems grateful for the endless amount of support and dedication that comes with family. Her dad lovingly gave her a kidney, but Sarah felt the love from all of her close family.

“It was just amazing, and it really opened my eyes to see who’s there for me and who’s not.”

Taking on a bright new outlook in life, Sarah is definitely continuing to shine.
