Selena Gomez's stepdad thanks her friend for giving her a kidney to save her life

Brian Teefey, Selena Gomez's stepdad, has publicly thanked her friend, Francia Raisa, for the 'ultimate sacrifice'.

Raisa donated one of her kidneys to Gomez to save her life this summer.

Speaking to Hollywood Life, Teefey said: "I am not only Francia’s manager but also Selena’s father so the magnitude of what Francia has done for our family cannot be put into words.

Selena Gomez broke the news that she had a kidney transplant yesterday (September 14), and that her best friend was her donor after no-one in her family was a match.
