Francia Raisa isn't just Selena Gomez's hero: On Thursday, she became ours, too. The actress, who's best known for her roles on Dear White People and The Secret Life of the American Teenager, donated a kidney to her BFF. "There aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa,” Gomez wrote on Instagram. “She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much, sis.” Here, we take a look at the lovely lady we're all thanking today.
Raisa's an actress in her own right, too. Here she is with Shailene Woodley and Megan Park on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, which ran on ABC Family for five seasons from 2008-2013. And she'll soon be returning to Freeform (formerly ABC Family) in the Black-ish spin-off, Grown-ish.
