  • Selena Gomez's kidney transplant reveal helps boost fundraising for lupus charity

"I think that she is a very strong woman".

Nick wished her well during a radio interview on SiriusXM's Hits 1 in Hollywood the same day, saying: 'I didn't [know she had gotten the surgery].

Last year Francia paid tribute to Selena on her birthday, revealing she had been there for her through thick and thin. The star revealed that she had Lupus back in 2014 and fans were shocked to hear about the invisible disease.

Selena Gomez definitely surprised everyone when she revealed she had previously undergone kidney transplant surgery.

Gomez, 25, wrote that she was "very aware" that many of her fans noticed she was out of the public's eye for parts of the summer. "So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering". Selena needed a transplant due to lupus, an autoimmune disease and it was her best friend Francia Raisa who donated her kidney to her.

On Sept. 15, pop star Selena Gomez took to Instagram to share a rather peculiar photo of herself in a hospital bed together with a friend.

"There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my handsome friend Francia Raisa", Gomez wrote alongside a photo of the friends holding hands from their hospital beds as well as photos of her stomach following the surgery.

Selena added that Francia gave her the "ultimate gift" and sacrifice by donating one of her key organs so Gomez can live and continue to work on her career. Now, it has been revealed that the reason for her silence was that she had been recovering from the surgery. "I am incredibly blessed", added Gomez.

"I'm pumped for her", he continued. "She told me about it two weeks before the operation, and of course, at first, I was anxious, but then she said that she had been thoroughly informed about everything and that she was going to do it".
