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!
