At first, I was not surprised when I heard the news that Selena Gomez had got a kidney donor but came to find out the donor was Francia Raisa. I was like what?? – – but in a very good kind of a good feeling way. Early in 2017, her bestie friend Selena learned that she needed a kidney since she has been suffering from Lupus for a very long time.
The give she did make people feel moved by her actions. Not many besties are willing to this for their friends. The world took a turn to recognize just what she did by inviting her and Elle Fanning to the world’s largest music event Billboard to present Selena’s award with the honor given to her of being Billboard’s “Woman of the Year” alongside her BBF’s side.
And this is what she said while her face was with full of joy:
“To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award because she saved my life.” A tearful Gomez told the audience.
As beautiful as she is, as luckier as she is to have that fame and great friends at different great places, Francia could not leave Selena to die or suffer to find a donor but instead, she decided to be friends for life. What could cause Selena forget Raisa for this?. In 2015, was the first time Selena had revealed the disease she was suffering from and she was even missing out on tours because of undergoing treatments and that’s when she decided to let her fans know that she had been suffering from Lupus for quite some time.
But two years later, a young American actress with some latina origin came stroke the nerves of many in which many never knew she had. What a perfect example of a woman and a bestie!.
“It was so positive for our friendship,” she comments on the operation. “It got us closer but I also learned so much about myself. It was a very humbling experience. I was 28 years old at the time and I [needed] help to take a shower. I’ve learned so much from Selena growing up in our friendship.”
So, What now? In September 2017, Selena took to her Instagram page to show how lucky and grateful she was to have received a kidney transplant from her BFF Raisa over the summer after the doctors discovered she had to have a transplant to live on due to lupus.
It has been three months since the two revealed their kidney surgeries together and this has been an awesome experience of their friendship ever as Raisa is proudly displaying her surgery scar on the red carpet
Are you worried what could happen to Raisa and Selena after their surgeries?. Raisa told the US Weekly that:
“We’re doing great. I’m feeling really good and I’m really happy to be here.” she kept it blunt how great she feels after.
