Currently Booming: 'RHOBH' Yolanda Foster Confirms That Her Kids Also Have Lyme Disease

Fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are already quite familiar with Yolanda Foster and her battle with Lyme disease. Since her diagnosis not long after joining the show a few years back, Foster has used the reality series as a platform to help educate everyone about the sometimes debilitating disease.  She has traveled across the world in search of holistic treatments that might help improve the quality of her life and her fans have praised Foster's grit and honesty. What we didn't know is that two of her children, Anwar and Bella Hadid also have Lyme.

Foster spoke earlier this week at the Global Lyme Alliance Gala in NYC saying, ""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. 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.”

Foster's other daughter, GiGi Hadid also spoke out about being the only one in the family that is healthy and how hard it is to relate to her mom and siblings at times. Are you surprised that Foster's kids are also dealing with the effects of Lyme disease in their own lives?  There has been a bit of speculation on whether or not the star is too ill to continue filming for Bravo. Do you think that Foster will return for the full 6th season of RHOBH?
