Azt már egy jó ideje tudni lehet, hogy Selena Gomez luspusban szenved. A betegség velejárója a krónikus vesegyulladás is, mely az énekesnőt is érintette, és ennek súlyos következményei lettek.
Selena egy megható Instagram-posztban vallott arról, hogy veseátültetésen kellett átesnie. Az énekesnő több fotót is megosztott a kórházi ágyában fekve barátnője mellett, aki, ahogy fogalmaz, "a legnagyobb ajándékot adta" neki.
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. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. 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. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
