New Delhi, Sep 19 (ANI): Selena Gomez's mother Mandy Teefey has recently opened up about her daughter’s kidney transplant in an emotional post. She recalled how she felt 'helpless' and 'scared' when her daughter had to undergo a kidney transplant. Teefey shared a photo of Gomez with best friend and kidney donor Francia Raisa in the hospital, the same picture that the 25-year-old singer shared when she announced the news of her kidney transplant. “This picture is one of the most breathtaking images that will live with me forever. For all those moments of not knowing if we were going up or going down, I can always come back to this picture and know we can always make it back up,” Teefey wrote on her Instagram account. She added, “As a mother I was helpless, scared and all I could do was pray for both of them, Francia's beautiful family. I am pretty sure I am banned from that hospital. Mama Bear was in high gear. Selena gained a kidney, I was able to keep my little girl, but I also gained another daughter....thank you to everyone who was there for Sel, Francia and our families. We survived from all the love, prayers and God.” For the unversed, Gomez's need for a new kidney was due to her ongoing struggle against chronic autoimmune disease Lupus. The singer seems to be slowly recovering from the kidney transplant.
