Upon discovering pop-star Selena Gomez had undergone a life-saving kidney transplant, the 25 year old’s former Disney Channel co-star, Jake T. Austin, has penned a heartwarming message to his ‘sister’. 

Taking to Instagram, the former Wizards of Waverley Place star posted a series of throwback photos with Selena alongside this message: 

“You remind me daily to live my most authentic life without apologies while constantly inspiring me to be the best I can be for not only myself, but for others. 

“You're one of the strongest people I know, proving that day in and out with a smile and no complaints even at times when I know it was hard for you. Anyone who knows you is well aware of your resilience. 

“I’ve never been more proud to call you my friend, my family and someone I couldn't live my life without. Someone once said, "friends are the family we choose" and I'm so thankful you're both. #getwellsoon #flasbackfriday 💙💙

Such beautiful words from Jake, proving once again that the Russo family are forever! 

We wish Selena and her kidney-donating BFF Francia Raisa a speedy recovery.
