Natalie Cole's Sister Dies

Recommended Posts

As if having to undergo a kidney transplant wasn't traumatic enough, singer Natalie Cole endured the tragedy of having her sister die while she was undergoing the operation, the New York Post reports. Cole was with her sister, Carole "Cookie" Cole, when she got the call that an organ was available. Natalie's other sister, Timolin Cole, told the Post that Natalie was reluctant to leave her dying sister, who had only been diagnosed with lung cancer the week before. "I told her, 'Natalie, this is God's gift, and you've got to go now. Cookie would want this for you.' " Natalie, who has hepatitis C and required dialysis three times a week, had a successful surgery, and is expected to go home over the weekend. Cole's father, Nat King Cole, also died of lung cancer, in 1965.
