BFF Goals: Francia Raisa Donates Her Kidney To Selena Gomez

Singer/ actress Selena Gomez was suffering from Lupus and the side effects of the auto-immune disease due to which she had damaged her organs. The singer was told by the doctors that she required a transplant.

Yesterday, Selena revealed that she has undergone a kidney transplant.

She found a donor in her “beautiful friend” Francia Raisa. <3

Selena took to Instagram to share this news with her fans. She posted a photo of her and her friend Francia holding hands.

Check out her Instagram post:

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.
