No matter how far and wide Yolanda Foster’s kids may travel on their many adventures, they will always find their home to support their mom! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been battling Lyme disease for the past two years and its effects have been severe, but she has her children by her side!
Yolanda, 51, has been hospitalized several times in the past few months due to relapses of the disease. Her symptoms include constant fatigue and memory loss.
On the season five reunion of the RHOBH, Yolanda had to cut her appearance short because of her health condition. She told Andy Cohen that she is, “just trying to weather the storm, you know? I pray every day that tomorrow is a better day.”
She and husband David Foster traveled to South Korea to find a potential cure. "They have the freedom to work with stem cells," she said. "You can't get those treatments here, and I think with Lyme it takes antibiotics but it also takes a lot of holistic treatment to balance it out."
The model-turned-reality star, who remains one of the most positive women on the show, told fans in a Bravo blog that she'd be unable to participate "because she couldn't process information or any stimulation for that matter."
The Dutch beauty confessed, "It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it.”
Yolanda is determined to find a cure and "get back to the person she used to be, no matter what it takes." And we hope she gets well soon! Do you have any health tips for Yolanda? Tweet us @OKMagazine or let us know in comments section below.
