Gave His Kidney For His Sister

Besides his popularity through acting, Sarah Hyland’s brother Ian Hyland was quite in news because of his act of kindness towards his sister as he donated his one kidney to his sibling. Ian’s sister was born with kidney dysplasia, a common condition in babies. Sarah’s kidneys didn’t develop properly in her mother’s womb and never functioned well.

Medical treatments staved off kidney failure throughout her childhood, but by the time she was 21, she needed a transplant. Her beloved father, actor Edward James Hyland, volunteered to give her his kidney. Sadly, five years later in 2017, her body rejected the organ and she was placed on dialysis to stay alive. That’s where her sibling Ian came into the rescue.
