Francia Raisa, who donated a kidney to best friend Selena Gomez this past summer, recently revealed her scar for the first time while lifting weights in the gym. The Grown-ish actress donned a baseball cap, sports bra and fitness trousers and showed off her two new scars against the backdrop of seriously impressive abs. "There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my handsome friend Francia Raisa", the Disney alum said in a lengthy post about her surgical journey. In the clip, there were visible scars on her abdomen from the transplant she underwent.
Selena announced earlier this month that she suffered a secret surgery to receive a kidney transplant from her friend Francia during this summer. But although they appear nearly the same on the outside, on the inside, the best friends are bonded forever.
"All I could do was support her. People need to know that you can live with one kidney, there are a lot of individuals that get scared to donate to people that need it because they're afraid of never again living a normal life". The "Bad Liar" singer opted for minimal makeup and had her hair pulled back, but perhaps the best part of her outing was that she was carrying a cup of popcorn, happily eating it as she strolled through the busy neighborhood.
On September 21, the actress shared a video of herself working out at a gym in a pair of leggings and a sports bra. Teefey described feeling powerless over her daughter's medical condition and switching into "Mama Bear" mode while Gomez awaited surgery.
Fans have taken to social media to praise Francia Raisa for her decision to donate one of her kidneys.
