Selena Gomez and others talk about lupus

Selena Gomez has been battling lupus for several years. She’s been open about her diagnosis (check out this ABC article in which Selena and other patients talk about what it is really like to have lupus).

Just a few weeks ago, she revealed that she underwent a kidney transplant this past summer for complications related to her disease. Her disease course is more severe than it is for many patients with the disease; kidney transplants are typically used only after other, less dangerous treatments fail.
