As MediaTakeOut.com reported to nearly a year ago, singer Natalie Cole, 58, has been battling Hepatitis C. We’ve also told to a few months ago that the legendary singer has been treated for kidney failure, and doctors have told her she needs a transplant.
Well now MediaTakeOut.com caught wind of a new report which claims that Natalie may have a donor. According to the National Enquirer, Cole asked family members not to donate, but her sister Timolin, 47, was tested in secret, and has been declared a match for her sick sibling.
Cole is currently too weak to undergo surgery, but doctors are reportedly building up her strength so they can carry out the transplant next month. A source told the Enquirer, "After (she learned of the match), Natalie kept saying, 'I can't believe this! I'm so blessed. My sister's giving me a tomorrow. She's saving my life.'"
Good for her all those years of drinking caught up to her

"Ah, yah, yah, yah, yah, yah, yah"
WISH HER ALL THE BEST!!
THATS NICE. AINT NOTHING LIKE FAMILY..
I HOPE NATALIE OVERCOMES HER SICKNESS.
Bless her heart.
Well, if she hadn't been smoking crack and sucking dcik and fcuking for rocks, she wouldn't need a borrowed kidney.
I wish her no ill will; but, selfish people need to stop expecting others to save them from themselves. And, she's real quick to pop off about how others live their lives. Whatever. I'm sick of her pimping her dead dad's songs and this illness.
GOD BLESS!! Ur in my prayers..
Boy, look at how Hep. C has aged Natalie!!! Who would've thought that some past indiscretion with drugs could do that.
How are you going to even come out your mouth like that for no reason, it wasn't even funny in the least bit also, you say "sperm makes pretty kids" like you're suprised about that "fact" yourself...like it's a miracle something pretty can come out of somebody that looks like you...just to let you know!
Really, Really!! I'm light skined and you will never hear me say something so ignorant. You say that dark women are uneducated or severely under educated soooo, what white university did you attend? You are trying to tell me that your highly educated self didn't run into ONE dark skined women at your school or could it be that you are just an uneducated small minded "light skined" woman? Just to let you know...Michelle Obama is not light skined.
We praying for you Nat.
