“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,” Selena shared on Instagram. “There aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa (The Secret Life of the American Teenager). She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed.”
A plus of Selena being so open about her health struggles are that donations to LupusResearch.org have sky-rocketed, having raised almost $500,000 for research funded by the Lupus Research Alliance.
We are wishing her a speedy recovery and good health going forward xx
