Selena Gomez reveals kidney transplant due to Lupus

Selena Gomez Has Undergone A Kidney Transplant

Two years ago, actress and singer Selena Gomez revealed that her 2014 rehabilitation treatment was a part of her lupus diagnosis.

Check out the rest of the details about Selena's kidney transplant in the video below, posted on September 14, 2017, and please SHARE if you think this is a story of true friendship!

Gomez said she needed a transplant as a result of having Lupus, an autoimmune disease that can cause damage to many organs, including the kidneys, heart and brain. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.

Gomez shared several photos of her transplant scars and thanked her family and team of medical staff who helped her through the surgery and recovery.

"There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my lovely friend Francia Raisa", she writes.

Gomez said she made the announcement to let fans know why she had not been out in public promoting her new music.

"I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down", she confessed. And as Gomez mentions above, Lupus is still (surprise, surprise, considering the priority that women's health seems in this country) an incredibly misunderstood disease that affects more women than men.

Gomez shared a photo on Instagram showing her and her friend Francia Raisa holding hands in a pair of hospital beds.

What's Unfolding For Shares of Enable Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE:ENBL)
The Connor Clark & Lunn Investment Management Ltd holds 8,725 shares with $5.53 million value , up from 1,900 last quarter. According to data from First Call, Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE:MMP) has a consensus recommendation of 2.60.

She was later forced to take time more time off in 2016 to deal with other side effects of the illness, including "panic attacks" and "depression".

Gomez first revealed she suffered from Lupus in a 2015 issue of Billboard.

Francia Raisa is a 29-year-old model and actress from Los Angeles, the daughter of radio personality Renan Coello and one of Selena's closest friends.

She ended her post with the phrase, "By grace through faith".

They both deserve so much love and happiness. No one in her family was a match, but thankfully an wonderful friend was able to step in and literally save her life.

The California native may also be familiar because of her role in Bring It On: All Or Nothing.

Gomez has always been battling with Lupus, which is what necessitated the transplant.
