Friendship Goals?! Selena Gomez had a Kidney Transplant & her Friend was the Donor



Singer Selena Gomez has revealed that she had to undergo a kidney transplant recently due to her Lupus and according to her, that’s why she has been laying low for part of the summer.

In a post shared on Instagram, she also reveals that her friend made the sacrifice of donating her own kidney. So sweet!

See Selena’s post below.

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made. For more information regarding Lupus please go to the Lupus Research Alliance website: -by grace through faith.

    anyone else noticed how a kidney transplant is being referred to almost casually. not casually but you get. meanwhile in Nigeria, needing to do a kidney transplant is almost akin to death sentence if your father is not a politician, a thief or a billionaire. God help us with our health system. Issa disaster. Wish you quick n safe recovery Selena and Francia.
