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.
First of all, do you know what the name Francia means?. It’s Italian and it means “France”. Okay, enough with the name.
Francia Raisa is an American actress whose heart is large and has a thing for giving. Did you know that she gave Selena her kidney?. That’s right. In 2015, Selena Gomez announced about her disease known as Lupus which she has been suffering from for quite some time. Then two years later, Francia was touched and she decided to donate her kidney to Selena, meaning that she has one kidney and completely okay with it. What a wonder woman she is.
I always love the movies she is in plus all the television shows. The role Leti in the movie known as ‘Bring It On: All or Nothing’ really made her became a famous young celebrity because she is best well known for that role.
Are you fan of The Secret Life of the American Teenager?, if not then you are missing out on a lot of things to learn and experience from the show. Francia had played a major role as Adrianne which she played as a player girl who would sleep with lots of different guys in high school without a care in the world. For that role she won a Gracie Allen Award for Outstanding Female Rising Star.
Of course, she has some siblings – – her two younger sisters namely Italia and Irlanda.
She debuted for her first on-screen credit in the television show American Family: Journey of Dreams in 2004.
Many did not know this but she appeared as Tamy in the music video of Lil’ Romeo “My Girlfriend”.
Ever wonder where she was made of?. Selena rose to fame for playing a great role as Alex Russo on Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place. It’s not that things were just made out of a blah for her, she has what she has right now because she earned it. In 2008, she formed a band that she was leading and it was called Selena Gomez & the scene. Not only formed the band, but also it actually existed and was able to produce and release three albums which in the end Selena decided to to go on a solo journey to find herself in the the music thing. Yes, It’s a thing nowadays.
Gomez is 25 year old, she has had hits in the last few years of being solo and she has made her two solo albums Stars (2013) and the other amazing album called Revival released in 2015 which hit #1 on the U.S Billboard chart.
What the ex / rumored girlfriend of Bieber is really luck about is that she grew up with a mother whose heart was into the entertainment and so while growing up, her heart was already into the entertainment thing too. She grew up watching her mother rehearsing for the theater productions. Gomez is really a good actress.
In 2015, the humble beauty revealed the disease she was suffering from and really affected her work and life in general. But God doesn’t abandon his loyal people, so two years later – – a good samaritan known as Francia Raisa donated a kidney to her.
She has cool supporting parents which are Mandy Teefey and Ricardo Joel Gomez. She has also two half-sisters namely Tori and Gracie.
Do you really how many guys Selena has dated so far in this game?. I will let you count for yourdelf. The legendary king of her heart has always been the Biebs even though things go sideways with them from time to time. She has also dated the R&B singer The Weeknd, taylor and DJ Anton Zaslavski, AKA Zedd.
You were never sure if she dated Zedd, right?. Well, they dated and made some beautiful love songs together.
Gomez and Miley Cyrus should be bestfriends in this music industry as the Selena appeared in the three episodes of the TV series Hannah Montana from 2007 to 2009. Disney has some really cool products to be proud of. No wonder it will always last.
