Why Famous Singer/Actress, Selena Gomez underwent Kidney Transplant

Sometime in 2015, Selena Gomez revealed her lupus diagnosis although, not much update was given about her treatment. However, in an Instagram post earlier today, September 14th, 2017, the famous songstress shared the striking news of her kidney transplant due to her struggles with lupus to her fans who emphatized with her. According to her, the donor of the kidney was television actress, Francia Raisa (The Secret Life of the American Teenager star). The post didn't reveal Gomez's current condition or say where or when the procedure took place.

Here's what she has to say:

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.
