Selena Gomez reveló en su cuenta de Instagram que hace algún tiempo fue sometida a un trasplante de riñón y que su donante había sido su mejor amiga, Francia Raisa.
Francia aunque no es popularmente conocida también pertenece al mundo de espectáculo y ha acompañado a Selena en varios eventos y alfombras rojas.
Raisa ha participado en las series de ABC "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" (La vida secreta de la adolescente estadounidense), la película de "Bring It On: All or Nothing" ("Triunfos robados") y The Cutting Edge 3: Chasing the Dream.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! Haha! So awesome to wake up to so many birthday wishes. Thank you to those who have donated to @uheroes and have contributed to making my birthday wish come true.... to rescue 5 kids out of slavery. It's doing so well we're gonna keep this going for two more weeks. Click the link in my bio to learn more and get your own free vintage T that I helped design. I love you all so much! ❤
Selena y Francia son amigas desde el 2008 y la ex chica Disney la califica como "una hermana".
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.

I went through heartbreak this year and you left the studio and drove out of your way to come see me and comfort me. I received good news last month and you facetimed me minutes before you went up on stage just to congratulate me. There are so many moments we have and things you do that I cherish and don't take for granted. Wether its crying, laughing, or simply sitting on my kitchen floor throwing our hands up in the air confused at life, I'm thankful you're always there. I am obsessed with every memory we've built in the last 8 years and the ones we have yet to create. I am so grateful that God put you in my life when he did. If you think about the time that we met and where we were in our lives when we first hung out, his timing was perfect. It's been so inspiring watching you grow and to grow with you. I learn so much from you and I'm so so so proud of you. Happy Birthday Hermana. Love you so so so much @selenagomez
