Yolanda Foster, star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has been open about her ongoing battle with Lyme disease. On Thursday night, she made an appearance at the Global Lyme Alliance inaugural gala in New York, and was surrounded by her family.

Yolanda shared tearful hugs with daughter, Bella Hadid, and son, Anwar Hadid, both of whom have been diagnosed with the disease. Yolanda stated it:

“…struck the deepest core of hopelessness inside of me.”

Taking the stage, Yolanda’s daughter, Gigi Hadid, introduced her mom, saying, she has been “…honest, unapologetic, and raw in how she portrayed Lyme disease on social media and on the show from the second she announced to the world she had been diagnosed.”

In her speech, Yolanda promised her kids:

“I will walk to the end of the earth to find a cure so that you can live a healthy life that you deserve.”

She went on to apologize to her children.

“…all the important things I have missed in your life these past four years… I used to be a pretty cool, smart, multi-tasking, kicka** mom — but all three of you, all three of my children really got short-changed with a dumb blonde in the white robe, that mostly lives her life in bed.”

Kyle Richards and Gigi’s boyfriend, Joe Jonas, were on hand to lend support. Also present, Yolanda’s husband, David Foster, who has spared no expense in trying to find treatments to help Yolanda’s condition.

We wish her well.
