Oh my goodness: Lyme Disease is extremely prevalent in Yolanda Foster’s family. The former cast member of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ has been very open about her four-year struggle with Lyme Disease. Last night she and her kids: Bella Hadid, Anwar Hadid, and Gigi Hadid (who was there with Joe Jonas) all attended the Global Lyme Alliance Gala in New York.
Yolanda was presented with the Power of One Award after posing on the red carpet.
She said, in part:
I honestly don’t have the proper words in my vocabulary to describe to you the darkness, the pain and the unknown hell I’ve lived.”
If you follow Yolanda on social media, however, it’s clear that she’s struggling. She looked great last night, though, didn’t she?
After being formally presented with the award, Yolanda revealed that two of her children, Bella and Anwar, have also been diagnosed with Lyme Disease.
This award is for Anwar and Bella. This is my token and my promise to you that I will not allow you to live a life of pain and suffering.”
Bella posted a picture of herself with her siblings on the red carpet:

Gigi doesn’t appear to have been diagnosed with the illness. More and more people appear to be struggling with Lyme Disease: hopefully researchers are working on developing treatments.
