Yolanda Foster may be juggling several life roles but none is as important to her as being a loving and protective mother. She recently shared that she will do everything in her power to provide a healthy and happy life for her children.
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” took to Instagram to share a picture of her medication for Lyme disease, along with the medicines for two of her three children, Anwar and Bella Hadid, E!News reported. The picture showed three vials of low dose allergy immunotherapy which helps to strengthen the immune system.
Yolanda captioned the image, "I will walk to the end of the earth to find a cure for my babies so that they can live the healthy life that they deserve to live."
The TV personality was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012 and has been open about her diagnosis. However, it was only in October when Yolanda revealed that Anwar and Bella were also battling Lyme disease. She made the revelation during her acceptance speech for the “Power of One” award she received at the Global Lyme Alliance inaugural gala, according to E!News.
In her speech, Yolanda shared that Bella and Anwar were diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in 2012 and has been struggling with it in silence. “Watching my babies struggle in silence in order to support me in my journey struck the deepest core of hopelessness inside of me. No child should suffer the way that you do…”
Despite enduring a difficult battle against Lyme disease, Yolanda is still optimistic about the future and is taking things one day at a time. She told People magazine ahead of the season 6 premiere party of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” held earlier this December, that she was “doing a lot better” as compared to the previous month.
“I hope to be moving forward to a bright future,” she added. “And just trying to get through it one day at a time."
Meanwhile, Yolanda and music mogul David Foster announced their divorce on Dec. 1, after four years of marriage. Soon after the divorce news became public, Yolanda took to social media to ask fans for their understanding and support. She wrote on Twitter that her “love and respect” for former husband David remains the same despite their separation.
She added, “He's been very good 2 me so pls don't judge our journey!"
