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

"She didn't receive any benefit from this, only the benefit of Selena having a better life". She has previously talked about her time spent in a rehabilitation center in 2014 after undergoing chemotherapy to address her disease (and the stress of drug abuse rumors spawning from her time spent there trying to get healthy).

The 25-year-old singer revealed on social media this week that she had to undergo the serious operation after her kidneys were damaged by the autoimmune disease Lupus, which she has long battled. She also expressed her utmost gratitude to her friend, fellow actress Francia Raisa, who donated her kidney to Gomez.

On Friday (15Sep17), Francia's mother, Virginia Almendarez, told Spanish-language television network Telemundo's show Al Rojo Vivo (Red Hot) that Selena and her daughter have both recovered well following their respective surgeries.

"I'm very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn't promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of", Gomez, 25, captioned the Instagram post.

A source told People magazine that The Weeknd was "one of her biggest supports" during her recovery from the kidney transplant.
