A National Kidney Foundation spokeswoman called the reveal "huge" for the 123,000 Americans now on the waiting list for a lifesaving organ transplant, 101,000 of whom need a kidney.

The kind-hearted friend who gave a kidney to Selena Gomez revealed her scars from the operation for the time in a new Instagram post.


The 29-year-old actress was seen pumping some serious iron in a new video posted to Instagram recently, which she captioned "Happy to be back". In the post, Raisa is seen wearing only a sports bra and workout trousers, which reveals her midriff and her post-op scars. She shared a photo of her and Francia lying on hospital beds side-by-side while holding hands post-surgery.

Raisa's sweat session comes just a week after the "Fetish" singer confirmed that she underwent a kidney transplant due to Lupus complications, with her bestie stepping in to help out.


In her post she explained her organs started shutting down as a result of her battle with Lupus, in which the autoimmune disease mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. "There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my lovely friend Francia Raisa", the Disney alum said in a lengthy post about her surgical journey.

'I love you so much sis. This was part of our story, and we will share it soon, but what is important now is that this is not the only story.


Now, if she could kindly tell us all where she gets her motivation from we'd all really appreciate it.
