Gomez gets kidney from best friend

After revealing she recently had a kidney transplant, Selena Gomez appeared fit and healthy as she stepped out in NY on Thursday.

Selena Gomez was taken into hospital in May while she was in Chicago with her boyfriend The Weeknd and found out she had kidney failure.

It was recently reported that Selena Gomez underwent a kidney transplant. The 25-year-old calls the transplant "what I needed to do for my overall health". Selena said that she was looking g forward to sharing her experiences in the past 7 months.

Francia Raisa was happy to give her best friend Selena Gomez the gift of better health. You also reminded me how fortunate I am and what an awesome gift that you and I have both received ― a new kidney. "I am incredibly blessed", she added.

Love you sis, so glad we're on this journey together.

Like Selena, she also directed her followers to learn more about lupus, saying: "For more information regarding Lupus, please go to the Lupus Research Alliance website: www.lupusresearch.org".

Earlier this week, Gomez admitted to having the kidney transplant, after one was donated by her actress friend, Francia Raisa, which has caused her to miss out on promoting some of her new music that she released this year.

In the wake of Harvey and Irma , two devastating storms, there's still about two and a half months of the hurricane season left. Jose had been a risky Category 4 tropical storm, with 150-mph winds, and now it has been declared a hurricane once more.

Raisa is a television actress from Los Angeles is best known for roles in the series, "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" and the cheerleader comedy film, 'Bring It On: All or Nothing'.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks itself, instead of fighting off infection that would cause the inflammation responsible for illnesses.

'I am so grateful that God put you in my life when he did'.

The superstar singer first told Billboard in 2015 that she had been diagnosed with lupus and was undergoing chemotherapy.

According to Raisa, the pair met in 2007 when they were part of a group of Disney and ABC Family stars picked to visit the Children's Hospital in Los Angeles. Gomez is also young, as is her donor, which makes doctors confident she will fully recover in no time.

"You're wonderful", one person commented.

"It sounds like she was treated a few years ago and now her lupus is under good control, or else they wouldn't have done the operation", Montgomery stated.
