Ready for a good cry? Selena Gomez’s heartfelt acceptance speech at the Billboard Awards on Thursday night was more than just a tearful thanks. 

The “Wolves” singer accepted her award for Billboard’s woman of the year with her friend Francia Raisa by her side. Earlier this year, Raisa donated her kidney to Gomez, who has been her lifelong friend. Raisa watched Gomez’s ongoing struggle with lupus and decided to undergo kidney transplant surgery. Through tears, Gomez thanked Raisa and dedicated the award to her BFF. “To be honest, I think Francia should be getting this award because she saved my life,” she said.

Yep, we warned you. Pass the tissues.
