In 2013, three weeks after her wedding to German born Erwin Bach, she had a stroke, and needed to learn to walk again.
In 2016, she was diagnosed with intestinal cancer. She had homoeopathic remedies to treat her high blood pressure, which led to damage to her kidneys and kidney failure. Her chances of receiving a kidney were low, and she was told to start dialysis treatment.
Later, Bach offered to donate a kidney for her transplant, and Tina had kidney transplant surgery on April 7, 2017.
She is survived by three children and her husband, Erin.
