Natalie Cole’s Kidney Donors

cole_513862aNatalie Cole has discovered just how loyal her fans are after dozens offered to donate their kidneys within minutes of the singer announcing she was suffering renal failure. The Times of London reports: ‘The Grammy Award-winner last night told American chat show host Larry King that both her kidneys had failed after treatment for hepatitis C and that she faced a lifetime of dialysis. While Cole, 59, the daughter of the late singing icon Nat King Cole, discussed how she had contracted hepatitis C through drug use and was now languishing on a long list of patients awaiting a donor kidney, dozens of emails flowed into Larry King Live. Less than ten minutes into the interview, King picked up a pile of print-outs and told Cole: “These are all e-mails from dozens — dozens! — of people offering to be tested to see if they can match, who want to give you a kidney.”‘
