Unforgettable fans

Natalie Cole

’s fans will apparently do anything for their idol.

They even want to give her a kidney.

The 59-year-old singer told

Larry King

on Tuesday that her kidneys are failing, and while she was still on his show, dozens of people contacted CNN offering to be tested as possible donors.

Without a donor kidney, Cole says she will be on dialysis for the rest of her life.

The daughter of

Nat King Cole

said she was diagnosed with hepatitis C in February 2008. Her kidneys failed after treatment and she has since been seeking a donor.

Here’s hoping she finds what she needs – and that her plight brings attention to others facing the same dilemma.
