Selena Gomez Gets Kidney Transplant

"It was what I needed to do for my overall health."

Selena Gomez’s battle with lupus isn’t over. Since being diagnosed with the chronic inflammatory disease years ago, the singer has canceled tours, taken time off, and even underwent chemotherapy to combat the autoimmune illness. Now, the 25-year-old is opening up about a recent kidney transplant she received after suffering major health complications.

According to Selena, she received “the ultimate gift” when a friend made the “sacrifice” by donating one of her organs.
