Cover star Sarah Hyland (@sarahhyland) and Wells Adams (of "The Bachelorette" fame) have been dating for a little over a year. They met in person for the first time just three days before she had her second kidney transplant, in September 2017. That was quite a week for Hyland. As she describes it: "September 16th I had an [Emmy Awards] party and my first date with [Wells]. The 17th was the Emmys. The 18th I had work on Modern Family at 6 A.M. and then I went to dialysis afterwards. And then I had to be at the hospital at 4 o'clock in the morning for my transplant the next day."

Here is what you may already know: Sarah Hyland (@sarahhyland) was born with kidney dysplasia. She went into kidney failure, and needed a kidney transplant. In 2012, when she was 21, her dad gave her one of his. This much is public knowledge. What Hyland hasn’t been ready to share until now is that in 2016, her body began to reject the donated kidney. So began a very intense and emotional two years, which involved dialysis, multiple surgeries, and a second transplant—this time with a kidney from her brother. “I was very depressed,” Hyland says. “When a family member gives you a second chance at life, and it fails, it almost feels like it's your fault. It's not—but it does.” Head to the link in our bio to read more. ?????????
