We first learned that Yolanda Foster was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in January, and although doctors don't have a proper diagnostic for the disease, she was still strong enough to talk about the battle with her condition.
On Saturday, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star made a speech at the Lyme Research Alliance's Time for Lyme gala, and while she admits that the disease has made her a "tough cookie," she's still saddened because her condition has also brought her "some of the darkest days of her life."
Miz Foster's speech is so incredible, and we're extremely happy that she was able to get up in front of a lot of people — considering that for a period of time in her life, she "was unable to read, process information, write, or do anything as simple as watch TV."
Ch-ch-check out the beauty talk about her battle with lyme disease (above)!
