[ # ] Selena Gomez talks about her kidney transplant with Francia Raísa
October 30th, 2017 under Selena Gomez, The Secret Life of an American Teenager

Last month, Selena Gomez revealed that she got a kidney transplant over the summer due to complications from Lupus and her friend Francia Raísa was her donor. Today, the two actresses talked about the transplant on Today.

Gomez knew she needed the transplant, but did not want to ask anyone for it. Then one day, when everyone in her family already did not match, she broke down to her roommate. As soon as Francia Raísa knew she needed a transplant, she offered to be tested. Before, the Secret Life of the American Teenager actress had a chance to think about it, they were on the operating table. Raísa went first, and everything went fine. Then it was time for Gomez and the surgery went fine. But then something went wrong in recovery and she went back into surgery for 6 more hours. That surgery was a sucess and Gomez knew she was on the mend. When she woke up her arthritis went away and her Lupus seems to be gone.

When Savannah Guthrie said to Gomez that it’s like her best friend saved her life, the singer told her, “Because she did. That’s it. I guess I got to the point where it was really kind of life or death.” That is how close they were to death. In fact, Raísa made out a will before she went under. But she did not need it.

Now we know more about kidney transplants and how they really can save lives. I am not saying to just donate an organ, but if someone you know needs ones, then consider it.
