Today Selena Gomez surprised everyone by opening up about the fact that early in the summer, she had a kidney transplant.
When I was scrolling through Instagram I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Selena opened up about the fact that she wasn’t promoting her music, her newer music because she had something else going on. Something that was obviously much more important than her music career, she was actually fighting for her life.
She went on to explain that her best friend Francia Raisa donated her kidney to help save her life.
That is a friend you definitely want to have in your life if you ask me.
As many people know Selena has Lupus and it is clearly taking a very big toll on her body.
All that I can say is that I am glad that she opened up, I think it just makes her stronger. It’s probably extremely hard to open up about something like that but I think it is brave for her to open up about it.
Find yourself a Francia and don’t let them go, okay?
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.
