Some friendships are nothing short of lifesavers.
More than five years ago, Selena Gomez received a second chance at life when Francia Raísa voluntarily donated a kidney to help with her close friend’s Lupus battle. Now, the “Same Old Love” singer is reiterating just how selfless the act was.
“My best friend, her name is Francia. I will never ever, ever be more in debt to a person than Francia,” Selena shared in the March 10 episode of Apple TV+’s Dear… “The idea of someone not even second-guessing to be a donor was unbelievably overwhelming.”
Selena recalled the moment Francia agreed to get tested to see if she could be helpful. Within three days, the pair discovered they were a match.
“It was one of those moments where I felt watched over,” Selena explained. “I know I was so, so, so lucky. I understand that that doesn’t happen for a lot of people and I know the outcome of some of those situations and how serious they are, so I do not take it lightly that it’s happened to me that way.”
