Sarah was born with the Kidney dysplasia issue meaning her kidney didn't develop while she was still inside her mother womb. She went through kidney failure in 2012 when she had her first kidney transplant. Her father Edward James Hyland helped her donating his kidney at the time. 

But unfortunately, Sarah's body started rejecting her kidney in October 2016 which made her go through another Kidney transplant again in 2017. Luckily for her second kidney transplant, her brother,  Ian Hyland was her donor.

Sarah also stated that all her life she felt like a burden and even contemplated suicide when her second kidney failed thinking she would fail her little brother's kidney just like she failed her father's.

Furthermore, the actress had also revealed that her mother was told that Sarah was not going to live a normal life.

With all the health issues going on with Sarah, the strong actress left some positive message too along with her Instagram post and Interviews she did with Self Magazine. She says:

"I say words here that hopefully others can relate to and feel like they’re not alone. Hopefully those that are lucky enough not to experience this will learn about something new and take a moment to appreciate their health."
