Selena Gomez' Kidney Donor Reveals Scar In Video Post
(Radio.com) Last month, Selena Gomez announced that she underwent kidney transplant surgery earlier this summer--and the donor was her friend, actress Francia Raisa. Gomez has been open about her struggle with lupus, a chronic auotimmune disease that can adversely affect the kidneys, and her story touched more than 127 million fans on Instagram. The image of Selena and Fancia holding hands in hospital beds has been liked over 9.4 million times and counting.
Both have spent the summer recuperating and Selena got back to work last week. It appears Francia is diving back into her usual routines, too. Raisa shared a video from the gym of her doing some weight training, with her surgery scar visible below her crop top.
"Happy to be back," she captioned the post. The actress is best known for her roles in The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Bring it On: All or Nothing. This week, Selena Gomez' mother Mandy Teefey expressed gratitude for Raisa's donation, writing: "Selena gained a kidney, I was able to keep my little girl, but I also gained another daughter."
