RIP Simply the Best – Tina Turner

The Simply the Best hitmaker passed away aged 83 on 24 May, 2023

Tina Turner had opened up about her health just months before she died in one of her final Instagram posts, revealing she had wished she had known more, to spare “a lot of suffering”.

To mark International World Kidney Day on 9 March, Tina had shared a message on Instagram, which included a photo of her combined with a quote.

Today is International World Kidney Day. Why is it important?

Because kidneys fail without pain. And that’s why I’m telling you today: Show your kidneys love!

They deserve it. My kidneys are victims of my not realising that my high blood pressure should have been treated with conventional medicine. I have put myself in great danger by refusing to face the reality that I need daily, lifelong therapy with medication. For far too long I believed that my body was an untouchable and indestructible bastion.

I am therefore delighted to be able to support a new international campaign for kidney health.

Let’s show our kidneys some love!
