“I wasn’t planning on sharing this part of my life with you”
From her early roles in Wizards of Waverly Place and Lemonade Mouth, to her critically-acclaimed film projects and red-hot singing career, Hayley Kiyoko’s always crushing it – both onstage and onscreen.
We also love how the “Sleepover” consistently and bravely uses her platform in order create a positive change. Earlier today, Hayley shared a heartfelt message with her 435,000 Instagram followers, and detailed her father’s difficult journey in finding a liver donor:
My dad which we’ve been calling ‘Tinman’ needed a heart and a liver transplant. Waiting for an organ donor was the most stressful/emotional experience of our lives. Not knowing what the outcome would be. After being in the hospital for 71 Days, he finally got the call. I can’t tell you how thankful I am for the donor who saved his life. And to all of the nurses, doctors and surgeons at Cedars Sinai. That hospital is incredible. I could scream and shout from the bottom of my soul. I wasn’t planning on sharing this part of my life with you but I strongly urge all of you to become organ donors if you aren’t already. Especially if you are O+. So many people are in need. A stranger saved my dad’s and now I get to hold onto him longer. I’m so proud of you Dad. I am forever grateful. ??
We’e wishing Hayley’s dad a speedy recovery!
