And my dream come true Donor… This is gonna be such an amazing birthday coming up! A new birth… New start! Here is to good health, and gratitude.”

“Bijou was born with small kidneys and has been quietly dealing with kidney disease for the last five years, including being on the transplant list,” the rep said in a statement to ET. “In an effort to heal her body she has led a stress-free life with a vegan diet, which eventually wasn’t enough, and she’s been privately having dialysis.”
“She recently found out one of her friends is a match and is optimistic that she will have a transplant soon,” the statement concluded.
