Gigi Hadid's mom Yolanda Foster has been vocal about her battle with Lyme disease, and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star just revealed the heartbreaking news that her children, Bella Hadid and Anwar Hadid, have also secretly struggled with the condition. While accepting an award at the Global Lyme Alliance Gala, their mom opened up about their diagnosis in 2012.
"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," she said.
However, she says it was the hardest watching her two youngest children struggle, so she's dedicating the award to them.
"[God] 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 revealed.
"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."
We had no clue they were going through this! It's absolutely heartbreaking.
