Lady Gaga just tweeted the nicest well-wishes to Selena Gomez, and our hearts are full
As you probably know by now, Selena Gomez has been recovering from a kidney transplant she had over the summer. And now, celebs are taking to Twitter to wish her well. Lady Gaga just reached out to Selena Gomez with a kind message of support, and our hearts are full.
It’s especially sweet since Gaga is dealing with her own health issues at the moment too. Gaga has opened up about her chronic pain in the past. The other day she revealed she has fibromyalgia, a disorder that causes widespread pain and fatigue. Gaga even had to cancel a show this week after the pain got to be too much.
The fact that Gaga reached out to Gomez when she herself is not well makes us love her even more.
Of course, Gaga’s not the only one who’s been reaching out to Gomez. Kesha also sent positive thoughts and love to both iconic women.
And then there are all of Gomez’ fans.
As of this moment, her Instagram post about her kidney transplant has gotten over 8.7 million likes and counting.
As Gomez mentioned, she has Lupus, and her kidney transplant was a result of having the autoimmune disease. The singer said that after speaking publicly about her condition, donations to LupusResearch.org have “soared.”
LupusResearch.org’s president stated that Gomez’ appeals have raised almost $500,000 for research funded by the Lupus Research Alliance.
Gaga, too, is making people aware of her chronic pain.
She dives into the topic more in her upcoming Netflix documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two, out on Netflix September 22nd. Talking about it can help others in similar situations.
Oh, and this photo of the two of them gives us ~all the feels~.
We’re thinking of both women and wish them both a speedy recovery!
