A representative of Bijou’s husband, Danny Masterson revealed the details,
"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. 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 weekly dialysis."
Being on the kidney transplant list, Bijous has finally found a match who is optimistic towards the approach and who also happens to be her friend. The representative further gave a fresh update saying,
"She recently found out one of her friends is a match and is optimistic she will be having a transplant soon."
