Still Unforgettable Is Natalie Cole
Grammy Award winner, Natalie Cole was released from the hospital just in time to attend a private family memorial service on Monday for her sister Carole “Cookie” Cole, who passed away following a battle with lung cancer the same day Natalie received her life-saving organ transplant.
Representatives for Cole says that she continues to do well under the circumstances.
In a tragic turn of events, Cole, who had been undergoing dialysis three times a week following complications from treatment for hepatitis C (now in remission), got the call that a donor organ was available while she was holding vigil at her ailing sister’s bedside.
Cole is expected to spend the next three to four months recuperating and will reschedule her summer tour dates in support of her album Still Unforgettable. Good luck to Natalie and her family. Stay strong!!!
