Selena Gomez's Best Friend Francia Raisa Reveals Scars From Kidney Transplant


As Selena shares her recovery with the public, her mother Mandy Teefey expressed gratitude to Raisa and Gomez's supportive fans her own Instagram post.

As Selena Gomez returns to her career in New York City after undergoing a kidney transplant earlier this summer, Francia Raisa is getting back to her normal fitness routine.

The pair considers each other family and Francia has been there for Selena throughout the hard times in her life, including her recent kidney transplant.

A National Kidney Foundation spokeswoman called the reveal "huge" for the 123,000 Americans now on the waiting list for a lifesaving organ transplant, 101,000 of whom need a kidney. The 29-year-old actress shared a workout video in the gym doing dumbbell work in leggings and a sports bra, giving a clear view of two scars on her abdomen, presumably from the kidney donation surgery.

People who get a transplanted kidney from a living donor survive, on average, 10 to 15 years longer than if they received the organ from a deceased donor.

Gomez described her most-recent transplant as 'what [she] needed to do for [her] overall health'. In the same announcement on Instagram, Gomez revealed that her good friend Francia would be the one to sacrifice her kidney. I am incredibly blessed.

"I am beyond grateful that God would trust me with something that not only saved a life, but changed mine in the process". I love you so much, sis'. I'm very proud of both of them. "Francia has a huge heart because not anyone would just let go of one of their organs to give it to someone else". Gomez first confirmed she has the condition in 2015.
