Selena Gomez Opens Up About Her Kidney Surgery On Instagram

Selena Gomez shocked her fans and the world when she revealed that she had undergone a kidney transplant. She was donated a kidney by her fellow actress and friend Francia Raisa. The two have been close friends for many years, since Selena’s Disney days.

This is what the singer wrote on Instagram: “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: www.lupusresearch.org/ -by grace through faith.” We hope she will get better soon!
