Yolanda Foster posted a photo online on Sunday of her son carrying her. As the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star continues to battle Lyme disease, her family has rallied around her, supporting the reality star and model as she searches for a cure.
On Instagram on April 26, along with the heartbreaking photo, Yolanda Foster shared the following message with fans:
“Thank you for sharing your compassioned heart and carrying me through these darkest days of my life @anwarhadid #MissingYouAlready #FamilySuport #MyHealthJourney.”
Yolanda Foster was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012, and suffered a relapse in December of last year, which left her unable to read, write and even watch television. Since her relapse, Yolanda Foster has been traveling the world, in hopes of finding a cure for the devastating disease, and receiving proper treatment.
Earlier this year, amid The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season five, Yolanda Foster took to her blog, where she announced her relapse, and explained to fans why she hadn’t been keeping up with her Bravo TV obligations. Then, weeks ago, Yolanda Foster returned to her blog, where, as the Inquisitr reported, she updated fans on her health.
“My world has become very small. I have moved into an apartment with my husband and son in order to have a more manageable scope of responsibilities while I recover slowly and learn to take life one day at a time,” Yolanda Foster wrote. “Getting well is my full-time job these days.”
Since suffering her Lyme disease relapse months ago, Yolanda Foster has been unable to get back to where she was, and sadly, was deeply affected by her disease during filming on the season five reunion for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In fact, the long day of taping left Foster mentally exhausted, and after breaking down, she left the set early.
Still, Yolanda Foster is staying positive about where life will take her in the coming months.
“I am a determined warrior, and even though this has brought me to my knees, I know God often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad of our greatest calling.”
As for her future with Bravo, Yolanda Foster may be unable to continue. Although fans would love to see more of her, and she would surely want to continue spreading awareness for Lyme disease, she may need to quit her job in reality television, and focus on her health.
