Selena Gomez Receives Kidney Transplant From Francia Raisa

Selena Gomez just revealed that she had a kidney transplant this year and the kidney was donated by her friend, Francia Raisa.

The 25-year-old entertainer announced the news on her Instagram account.

“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,” Selena revealed.

She continued, “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.”

Back in 2015, Selena revealed she underwent chemotherapy for her Lupus. If you didn’t know, Lupus is a “chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs,” the Mayo Clinic reports. We’re wishing Selena all the best in her continued recovery.
