Selena Gomez Emotionally Speaks About Francia Raisa Kidney Donation (Video)

Selena Gomez sat down for an interview with her kidney donor and best friend, Francia Raisa, which aired today on the Today show.

The pair discussed Selena‘s failing health, Francia deciding to get tested to see if she was eligible to donate, the day of the surgery, and more.

“I had arthritis. my kidneys were shutting down,” Selena tearfully revealed. She continued that the transplant need was dire, and the list to get a transplant was very long. “I don’t know what to do. The list is 7 to 10 years long,” she said.

“The thought of asking somebody to do that was really difficult to me,” Selena continued, and Francia volunteered.

“I had to write a will. Which is scary…My mom didn’t want to be there until I woke up. She loves Selena, so she was torn,” Francia said.

Selena also added there was a complication after the surgery where the kidney started to flip. She had to go back in for another procedure.
