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.

Ποια ήταν ωστόσο η δότρια του οργάνου, που πόζαρε στη φωτογραφία μαζί με τη διάσημη τραγουδίστρια;
Πρόκειται για την κολλητή της φίλη και ηθοποιό στο Los Angeles, Francia Raisa! Η 29χρονη ηθοποιός (και μοντέλο) είναι φίλη με την Selena ήδη από το 2008. Μάλιστα, η Gomez, στην ανάρτησή της την αποκάλεσε «αδερφή» της, προκειμένου να τονίσει τη δυνατή φιλία που ενώνει τις δυο τους. Άλλωστε η διάσημη τραγουδίστρια συνηθίζει να την αποκαλεί έτσι. Μάλιστα, το 2015, η ηθοποιός είχε αποκαλύψει ότι η Selena της χάρισε ένα κολιέ με την επιγραφή: «μια αδελφή είναι παντοτινή φίλη» όταν βρέθηκαν για πρώτη φορά!
Στον Instagram λογαριασμό της Francia μπορεί κανείς να βρει αναρτήσεις με την αγαπημένη της φίλη, Selena.
I went through heartbreak this year and you left the studio and drove out of your way to come see me and comfort me. I received good news last month and you facetimed me minutes before you went up on stage just to congratulate me. There are so many moments we have and things you do that I cherish and don't take for granted. Wether its crying, laughing, or simply sitting on my kitchen floor throwing our hands up in the air confused at life, I'm thankful you're always there. I am obsessed with every memory we've built in the last 8 years and the ones we have yet to create. I am so grateful that God put you in my life when he did. If you think about the time that we met and where we were in our lives when we first hung out, his timing was perfect. It's been so inspiring watching you grow and to grow with you. I learn so much from you and I'm so so so proud of you. Happy Birthday Hermana. Love you so so so much @selenagomez
