Sarah Hyland recently opened up about her health issues and revealed that her doctor actually said she would never have a normal life! The Modern Family actress underwent a kidney transplant in 2012 due to her kidney dysplasia, and apparently she has even more scary health concerns!

“I was born with so many health issues that doctors told my mother I would never have a normal life. And she said, ‘You’re right, she won’t – but it won’t be because of her health,'” she said. “When my mother told me that story, it resonated with me: If I can’t have an ordinary life, I might as well have an extraordinary one. If you set your mind to something, you’ll achieve it.”

Aww! We love how Sarah and her family were able to take negative feedback and make it positive! The actress is truly an inspiration.
