Selena Gomez on Her Donated Kidney

Selena Gomez is opening up for the first time in an interview about her recent kidney transplant alongside her donor, Francia Raísa.

The 25-year-old “Wolves” singer and actress and the 29-year-old The Secret Life of the American Teenager actress sat down with Today’s Savannah Guthrie for an interview about the experience.

“I guess I got to the point where it was really kind of life or death,” Selena says. “My kidneys were just done. That was it and I didn’t want to ask a single person in my life…and she volunteered and did it.”

Gomez received the transplant as part of her ongoing fight against lupus, an autoimmune disease that often attacks the kidneys. The singer has publicly battled lupus for the past two years, sharing that she also underwent chemo as part of her treatment.
