Yolanda Foster dropped some devastating news, her children Bella and Anwar Hadid also suffer from Lyme Disease. The entire family attended the Global Lyme Alliance Gala in New York yesterday as mom Yolanda accepted the award for Power of One trophy for her advocacy for Lyme disease awareness. “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 these past years. I actually did not live. I just existed in a jail of my own paralyzed brain. This disease has brought me to my knees. Many nights I wish to die. I pray that I will just wash away into heaven, where there will be no pain.”
And then Yolanda revealed that her two younger kids, Bella,19 and Anwar,16 also suffer form the disease, diagnosed in 2012.”God had different plans for me. He changed my destiny when my two youngest children, Bella and Anwar, were diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in early 2012. Watching my babies struggle in silence in order to support me and my journey struck the deepest chord of hopelessness inside of me, and it’s because of them that I’m motivated to stand here in front of you today,” she continued.
“I don’t deserve this award. 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. 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 in the way that you do.”
