According to the recent reports in the BBC news, pop star Selena Gomez had to go through a kidney transplant during summer this year. The American singer kept her surgery low key and decided to step forward to speak about it in her latest post on Instagram.
It hasn’t been long since Selena has been diagnosed with a Lupus disease, a rare case that can, among other things, affect the kidneys. It causes the immune system to attack the kidneys enough they can fail, requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant, precisely what the all time favourite star had to go through.
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.

In her heartwarming post, the diva revealed that her best friend Francia Raisa volunteered to donate her kidney for the surgery. Apart from this the Hollywood star thanked her fans and family for their unconditional love and support.
Selena wrote in her post, “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.” And we applaud the star on her bravery and noble cause of spreading awareness about the disease thereby helping others suffering from this condition become more positive.
