Hoy En Mi Gente News: Selena Gomez Gets A Kidney Transplant

Wow, Selena Gomez is showing her strength through her sickness. The pop star is sick from the autoimmune disease lupus and just revealed to fans that she had a Kidney transplant. In an Instagram post, Selena says she’s been MIA since earlier this summer after having the kidney transplant. She also gives thanks to her friend Francia Raisa, who gave up her healthy kidney for the pop singer.

Whew, try not to tear up.

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So 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. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
