Selena Gomez and Francia Raísa, the singer's friend who donated a kidney to her earlier this year, sat down with TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie for their first joint interview about the procedure. In a preview clip posted Friday for the interview, which airs Monday, Gomez describes the kidney transplant as a "life-or-death" move.“My kidneys were just done," she said. "That was it and I didn't want to ask a single person in my life. And she volunteered and did it."Gomez received the transplant as part of her ongoing fight against lupus, an autoimmune disease that often attacks the kidneys. The 25-year-old singer has publicly battled lupus for the past two years, sharing that she also underwent chemo as part of her treatment.
