Tina had to choose between two options – regular dialysis or a kidney transplant. Only the latter option could ensure her a normal life.

Tina’s beloved husband E. Bach, who became his wife’s donor at the age of 60, came to the rescue.
They underwent compatibility tests and despite the star being a high-risk patient due to high blood pressure, in 2017 a kidney transplant was successfully performed.
