The fans of the famous 25-year-old singer and actress, Selena Gomez, have had the opportunity to find out why their public appearances have been very limited in recent times. Gomez has gone through the experience of a kidney transplant due to the serious illness he suffers, lupus.
The star has a chronic autoimmune disease that causes the body’s tissue to be destroyed, and its kidneys have recently been affected. This is characterized by the appearance of inflammatory reactions with multiple localizations.
The news has raised the concern of many who have seen it in a picture that the singer posted on her Instagram account, stretched out on the hospital bed.

The one who donated her kidney is none other than her best friend, actress Francia Raisa, to whom she thanked Instagram with a moving statement.
“I am fully aware of the fact that many of my fans have noticed the lack of a good time this summer, wondering why I am not doing anything to promote the work I am so proud of. Meanwhile, I found out that I urgently need a kidney transplant because of my Lupus disease. That’s what I was supposed to do to get better. This is the moment when I want to publicly thank my family and the doctors team for everything they did for me both before and after surgery. There are not enough words to thank my wonderful friend Francia Raisa. By the gesture that he did for me, he gave me the supreme gift. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much, my sister, “Selena writes on Instagram.
The artist encourages fans to read more about the illness she had to face: “Lupus continues to be misunderstood, but serious progress is being made in researching this condition. I encourage you to learn more about Lupus, “she wrote.
Selena Gomez learned she had Lupus in 2015, and lately she had to take a break from appearing in the limelight due to anxiety, panic attacks and depression, all caused by illness.
