Selena Gomez and her best friend, Francia Raisa, gave an emotional interview to the Today show. She teased the discussion with a clip where she talks about Francia’s amazing kidney donation.
Selena is more than grateful to her friend who donated a kidney to her during the summer.
She seems to be full of love for her, and she wanted to give us a sneak peek of the Today interview.
The clip was taken from the emotional interview, which will air in two parts on October 30 and Oct.ober 31.
Selena confesses that Francia is the reason she is still alive today.
‘You feel that Francia saved your life,’ interviewer Savannah Guthrie says to the Fetish singer.
‘Because she did. That’s, that’s it,’ Sel says, looking stone-cold serious.
‘I guess I got to the point where it was, it was really kind of life or death,’ she continues.
It’s incredible that Selena feels comfortable opening up about this. But clearly, she has the support of one fantastic friend.
In the first preview the Today show aired, Selena was crying while talking about her life-saving kidney transplant.
‘My kidneys were just done. That was it,’ Selena says in the clip. ‘And I didn’t want to ask a single person in my life. That was the day when I came home when I found out, and she volunteered and did it.’
Selena first revealed the kidney donation in September in an Instagram post.
She told fans that her lupus diagnosis was the one that had sent her kidneys into failure, and spoke out for the first time on the secret procedure she underwent. ‘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,’ she wrote back then.
