Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster has been very vocal about her battle with lyme disease since being diagnosed with the illness in 2012.
Recently, however, while giving her emotional speech at the Global Lyme Alliance Gala in NYC on Oct. 9, Foster revealed her children Bella and Anwar Hadid have also been struggling with the illness.
Receiving the Power of One Award at the event, Foster stated, “When my two youngest children, Bella and Anwar, were diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in early 2012, watching my babies struggle in order to support me in my journey, struck the deepest core of hopelessness inside of me.”
She then went on to dedicate her award to them and to continue her journey on finding a cure: “This award is for Anwar and Bella. This is my token and promise to you that I will not allow you to live a life of pain and suffering. I will walk to the end of the earth to find a cure so that you can live a healthy life that you deserve. No child should suffer the way that you do… I thank you both for your extraordinary selflessness during this journey. Your unwavering love and compassion has kept me alive and fighting through the darkest days of my life.”
