Yolanda Foster Posts Photo of Bella Hadid’s Lyme Disease Struggle

Gigi and Bella Hadid’s mother has been battling Lyme disease since 2012 and she revealed in October that both Bella and Anwar were diagnosed with the chronic disease. The picture, taken last year, shows 19-year-old Bella being treated through an IV.



Captioned, “Watching my brave babies suffer in silence in order to support me in my journey has struck the deepest core of hopelessness inside of me, it is because of them that I continue to fight relentlessly……. I will not allow them to live a life of pain and suffering……. I will prevail and walk to the end of the earth to find a cure for them and millions of others debilitated by this invisible disease!!!! We all deserve to live a healthy life, don’t you think?”

Foster was awarded the “Power of One” award by the Global Lyme Alliance for Lyme Disease at the Global Lyme Alliance Gala. In her speech, Foster said, “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.”
