When a person gains popularity, there comes a time when they lose out on friends and family, but lucky are those who have friends for life.
This is what happened to Selena Gomez as well who had been unwell for quite some time now, as she suffered from Lupus. Her best friend of 8 years came in to her rescue by donating a kidney.

She Was Diagnosed With Lupus…
It was 2015 when Selena Gomez revealed that she was diagnosed with Lupus. She had even taken some time off, as she struggled with the disease, anxiety and depression.
She Posted About It:
"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.
