Sarah Hyland reveals how 'Modern Family' helped her through health struggles

Sarah Hyland has been vocal about her health struggles. Now she’s opening up about how her “Modern Family” co-stars and crew helped along the way. 

During a Friday appearance on “Good Morning America,” Hyland, 28, said it was helpful to have the show, now in its tenth season, to distract herself from the struggles of living with kidney dysplasia, a condition she was born with that has led to 16 surgeries including a second kidney transplant in 2017. 

“Being at work is so amazing to me because it’s what I love,” she said. “The cast is amazing, the crew is amazing… Most of our crew members have been with us since day one, so I’ve really grown up with these people. I’ve seen them get married and have kids and all of that.

She continued: “They always can tell if I’m not feeling well. Even our props guy or someone like that will be like, ‘I’m here if you need anything. I can tell and I know you don’t like to complain, but if you need anything just let me know.’ They’ve been really amazing to me.”

Aside from her co-workers, Hyland credits her friends for helping her get through tough days. 

“This sisterhood that I have with these girls is just amazing. And also dogs are the greatest thing ever to happen in the entire world,” she said. “You have to actively stay positive throughout things. It can take a toll on your mental health and your body but as long as you surround yourself with the right people and stay positive, you just — yeah. But I’m good.”
