Selena Gomez Donates Portion of Concert Tour Proceeds to Lupus Research
Back in 2013, Selena Gomez canceled parts of her Stars Dance Tour after she was diagnosed with lupus and had to undergo chemotherapy treatment. Now, nearly three years later, Gomez is about to hit the road again on the Revival Tour, and this time she’ll donate proceeds from each ticket sold to the Alliance for Lupus Research, according to her representative.
Based in New York, ALR is a national voluntary health organization whose mission is to find better treatments and ultimately prevent lupus. Gomez’s camp says ALR was selected because of its broad reach. Gomez revealed her lupus diagnosis in a 2015 Billboard cover story.
