What. A. Hero.
Wow. Talk about an actual living legend. Francia Raisa has posted this sweet video of herself in the gym after it was recently announced that she was in fact the kidney donor to mate Selena Gomez who was suffering with lupus.
As you can see, Francia isn't letting the surgery get the better of her!
Selena has previously shared a snap of the pair in hospital beds next to each other with the caption:
"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."
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.

Remember that time Selena had to actually apologize to Elle Fanning after tagging her in a post!
