Demi Lovato Says Selena Gomez Is A Very Brave Woman After Kidney Transplant
Demi Lovato is really proud of her friend, Selena Gomez, following her kidney transplant surgery. In an interview with People Magazine, Demi said that she thinks Selena is a "very strong woman."
"I'm thrilled and proud of her," added the singer who first met Selena when they were young children on Barney & Friends. Not long after, both Demi and Selena had shows on the Disney Channel in their teenage years.
This past Thursday, Gomez revealed on her respective social media that the reason she hid away from the public spotlight for awhile was that she was recovering from a kidney transplant.
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.
The singer for the track, "Hands To Myself," revealed back in October of 2015 that she was diagnosed with lupus and was even going through chemotherapy sessions for the autoimmune disease.
She also shared that one of her old friends, Francia Raisa, an actress most known for The Secret Life of the American Teenager, was the one to donate the kidney to her.
In an Instagram post, Selena wrote she can't even begin to describe how "thankful" she is for her beautiful friend, Francia Raisa.
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. Yesterday, Raisa's mother shared that both women are doing just fine after the surgery. Her mother continued by saying she is so grateful the surgery was a success and Selena's body didn't reject it!
