On September 14th Selena Gomez had a Kidney Transplant, Francia and Selena were at the hospital getting ready to start the transplant, in which she needed because of her ongoing struggle with Lupus. Lupus is a disease that causes your immune system to attack healthy tissue in your body. On September 15th she revealed that her best friend for many years, Francia Raisa, was her donor. Since Selena Gomez first advocated she was suffering with lupus back in 2015, Francia was there for her and still is. Friendship should be about sacrificing, Caroline Arias(12) said, “I think it was thoughtful of Gomez’s friend” for donating her kidney.

On September 17th Selena Gomez’s mom, Mandy Teefey, says, “Selena gained a kidney, I was able to keep my little girl, but I also gained another daughter…thank you…We survived from all the love, prayers and God.” Francia Raisa was Mandy Teefey’s  hero for donating her kidney to her only  daughter Selena Gomez, which demonstrated that nothing will come between their friendship. Jill Rombough(12) believes Francia Raisa, “was a great friend for doing this for Selena”. Also since this procedure many celebrities including Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, and Abel Tesfaye have been posting prayers and showing their support for Selena Gomez. At the moment both Selena Gomez and Francia Raisa are recovering quickly and ready for the future.
