 Natalie Cole To Undergo Kidney Transplant To Fight Hepatitis C
Natalie Cole's sister has reportedly decided to donate her kidney to the singer, who is suffering from the chronic liver disease Hepatitis C.

The eight-time Grammy Award-winner was believed to have contracted the condition owing to her drug addiction during the 80s and has been treated for kidney failure since September last year.

It was claimed that the doctors had told Cole that she needed a transplant and her sister Timolin's kidney was said to have been a match for her ailing sister.

"After (she learned of the match), Natalie kept saying, 'I can't believe this! I'm so blessed," Contactmusic quoted a source as telling the National Enquirer.

"My sister's giving me a tomorrow. She's saving my life,'" the source added.
