London, (ANI): Natalie Cole is terrified that she may not have enough time on her hands to undergo a life-saving kidney transplant. The 59-year-old singer has been suffering from kidney failure caused by the chronic liver disease Hepatitis C.
The eight-time Grammy Award-winner contracted the condition from her drug addiction during the 80s and is being treated since September last year. Natalie Cole has been put on a waiting list for a replacement organ but she fears the transplant may never come and has now left her fate to the Almighty.
"At the moment, where it's coming from, heaven only knows," the Daily Star quoted her as telling Los Angeles Confidential magazine.
