The 21-year-old actress reportedly underwent the procedure last month due to her ongoing struggle with kidney dysplasia.
"You know that family is going to be there for you no matter what. My dad gave me a freakin' kidney!" the young actress told the magazine. "But it's also the families that you create outside of our family. And you really find out what kind of people you're friends with.

Hyland also credited boyfriend, Matt Prokop, for helping her deal with the illness, stating that she is “one of the luckiest people in the world to have him be there for [her].”
