Tina Turner is one of the best-selling recording artists with a career spanning over more than five decades. She was raised by her grandmother after her parents’ divorced when she was a little child. She was born Anna Mae Bullock. Tina moved in with her mother at the age of 19, and it was then that her potential was recognized.
Before beginning a solo career, Tina first gained notoriety by performing with her then-husband Ike Turner.
She remained at the top for a long time thanks to her exuberant stage presence and strong vocals. The songs “Private Dancer,” “What’s Love Got To Do,” “Proud Mary,” and many others by Tina continue to be top hits and a part of the culture over many decades.
After having a stroke, Tina had trouble using her right hand. She briefly lost her capacity to talk as well, but she recovered her strength. But just when she believed everything was going well, she had a renal failure and intestine cancer diagnosis. Few people were aware of the superstar’s difficulties until she wrote about them in her book Tina Turner: My Love Story, which was released two years ago.
“I began to think about dying. I could understand it if my kidneys failed and it was time for me to pass on. It went well. When the time comes, the time comes. Although I didn’t like the idea of passing away, I was worried about how I would go,” she said in her essay.
She underwent a kidney transplant following the successful operation in which a portion of her intestines was removed. Her spouse, Erwin Bach, served as her donor.
Turner remarked, “I know that my medical experience is far from done. “But I’m still here, and we’re closer than we could have ever imagined. Looking back, I can see why my karma was what it was. The terrible resulted in the good. Pain gave way to joy. And right now, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.”
After she overcame a variety of health challenges, her followers wished her well and were curious to hear how she was doing. She answered them with a video and stated, “Yes, I made it, I look wonderful. I feel great. It’s like getting a second shot at life because I’ve faced and am conquering some extremely terrible illnesses.”

The singer reminisced about her past and discussed how she suffers from PTSD as a result of the violence she endured from her former husband Ike Turner in the recently released showcase documentary simply named “Tina.” Additionally, she stated that she wanted to begin the third and last chapter of her life away from the spotlight, which was seen as a farewell by admirers.
In the years to come, we wish Tina the best and really hope she won’t have any further health problems.
