ICYMI, Selena Gomez just shared a powerful Instagram post revealing that she received a kidney transplant from her friend Francia Raisa over the summer.

But you may not have realized that Selena and Francia have been best friends for nearly a decade.

The pair became inseparable back when Francia was starring on ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager as Adrian...

...and they met in the cutest way possible.

I met them at the childrens hospital a few years ago RT @Jasmine10NJ: @therealfrancia How did u meet @Selenagomez & @David_Henrie?

Francia explained more about it in a 2013 interview with Latina:

Six years ago Disney and ABC Family had the stars of their shows go to the Children's Hospital. Selena and I were in the same group and we just clicked.

Since they met, the two have continually supported each other's work all over social media:

Everyone should watch @therealfrancia on the season premiere of Secret Life tonight :)

Francia was even featured in that iconic video Selena posted of them dancing to Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble":
