Selena Gomez's mother felt 'helpless and scared' during singer's kidney transplant

Selena Gomez's mother felt 'helpless and scared' during singer's kidney transplant”

Following Francia's mom's interview about her daughter's selflessness, Mandy Teefey shared an emotional post to Instagram about feeling "helpless" over Selena's surgery.

Teefey's post comes just a few days after Gomez went public with the news.

Celebrities such as Katy Perry and Chris Massey have taken to social media to commend Selena for her bravery and strength after revealing on Instagram that she had a kidney transplant over the summer.

"I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering".

She continued, "As a mother I was helpless, scared and all I could do was pray for both of them, Francia's lovely family". For all those moments of not knowing if we were going up or down, I can always come back to this picture and know we can always make it back up. Francia Raisa is truly and angel that we're sure the Gomez family will never be able to thank enough. "Mama Bear was in high gear".

"I think that she is a very strong woman", Demi told People about Selena. For more information regarding Lupus, please go to the Lupus Research Alliance website: "www.lupusresearch.org - Love you sis, so glad we're on this journey together".

"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", she wrote alongside a picture of herself lying in a hospital bed next to her kidney donor and friend Francia. "I am incredibly blessed".

Both Gomez and Raisa have said that there is more to their story, which they plan on sharing soon. "It's a really handsome thing because I see girls now feeling sexy in not even necessarily workout clothes, but clothes you could go work out in, then put on a cute pair of shoes and go out after".
