Sharing the now-famous pic of her daughter and BFF Francia Raisa, who donated her kidney to Gomez, Teefey opened her heart to fans in a note that will resonate with any parent who's faced a lifelong illness with their child.
Celebrities such as Katy Perry and Chris Massey have taken to social media to commend Selena for her bravery and strength after revealing on Instagram that she had a kidney transplant over the summer.
One of the images that Gomez shared showed her and Raisa holding hands while each on their hospital beds.

Mr Poidevin, a practising Catholic, opposes gay marriage on the grounds it could be a slippery slope that leads to polygamy. Opposition Leader Bill Shorten on Sunday described arguments that went beyond the question of marriage as "white noise".
"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 said.
Raisa also shared a photo of the two of them in the hospital, writing, "I am beyond grateful that God would trust me with something that not only saved a life, but changed mine in the process".
"There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my handsome friend, Francia Raisa". We know undergoing a kidney transplant must've been incredibly hard for the 25-year-old, as well as for her 29-year-old best friend and donor. "Mama Bear was in high gear". She says I'm her mom. In the lengthy caption, Gomez explained to her fans she has not been actively promoting her new single "Fetish" that was released in late July. "There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my handsome friend Francia Raisa".
"I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering". I am incredibly blessed.
