A cantora Selena Gomez revelou, nesta quinta-feira (14/9), que passou por um transplante de rins. O procedimento é parte do tratamento do lúpus, uma doença autoimune.
Selena publicou algumas fotos em sua conta no Instagram. Em uma delas, a cantora aparece no hospital ao lado da doadora, sua melhor amiga, Francia Raisa. “Palavras não podem descrever a minha gratidão pela minha amiga Francia Raisa. Ela me deu um presente, doando seu rim para mim. Eu sou incrivelmente abençoada. Eu te amo muito, irmã”, escreveu.
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.
