Yolanda Foster Emotionally Writes About Her Children's Battle With Lyme Disease — Get Your Tissue Boxes Ready!
This is so hard to see!
On Tuesday, Yolanda Foster took to Instagram to share a pic of herself nursing her daughter Bella Hadid back to health. Poor thing!
In case you forgot, the blonde beauty revealed back in October that her 19-year-old and her son, Anwar Hadid, suffer from lyme disease like she does.
"❤2015-Watching my brave babies stuffer in silence in order to support me in my journey has struck the deepest core of hopelessness inside of me, it is because of them that I continue to fight relentlessly……. I will not allow them to live a life of pain and suffering……. I will prevail and walk to the end of the earth to find a cure for them and millions of others debilitated by this invisible disease!!!! We all deserve to live a healthy life, don't you think? #LymeDiseaseAwareness#FightingTheInvisible #RealLifeProblems#SoulPower#WeMustFindACureAffordableForAll#RHOBH @bravotv @bravoandy@evolutionusa"
Well said! What's inneresting is that Miz Foster, despite claiming she has nothing to prove, went in depth in her most recent blog post about how she and her two kiddos may've all gotten the same disease.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star posted:
"Bella and Anwar were diagnosed at the end of 2013 and have been in extensive holistic treatment ever since. It's very common for multiple family members to be affected by Lyme disease. The children and I lived on a horse ranch in Santa Barbara for 10 years and spent the majority of our time outside in nature.
Bella had to give up her lifelong dream of having a professional riding career and a shot at the Olympics due to her severe symptoms and inability to ride.This was the biggest heartbreak of her life and an extremely sensitive subject for her. She is resilient and focused on a new direction–she's made a name for herself in the modeling industry while she struggles with symptoms of chronic Lyme every day.
Anwar still does regular Ozone/UVI treatments and has had great success with LDI. I am glad to say that he is doing much better and finished a football season with great scores and healthy energy.
Both of them are under the care of Dr. Detrich Klinghardt and have made good progress this past year.
With Mohamed's support, I have managed my children's healthcare on a daily basis since the day they were born. It is up to no one but us to make claims toward their health status. Shame on those who think it's OK to spread rumors and provoke doubt about something so heart wrenching."
Oh snap! Looks like Yolanda totally just shut down her doubters.
The 52-year-old and her ex Mohamed Hadid seem to be a united front for their children as he clarified to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live! that Lisa Vanderpump's gossip (that he didn't believe his children were sick) was simply incorrect.
We wonder what the SUR owner is going to have to say about all that! We wish the Foster/Hadid family only the best as they continue to struggle with their chronic illness.
We hope you all feel better soon!
