While Foster has been an outspoken activist, working tirelessly to generate awareness of the debilitating condition, fans believed she was suffering alone. 

Speaking at the Global Lyme Alliance Gala in Manhattan, the former model said two of her three children were also diagnosed in 2012. This poor woman! It's enough to think that she's been ravaged by the condition, but for her to watch it affect her kids has to be that much more devastating. Foster shared her agonizing journey:

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.

No wonder she's vowed to fight the disease that she says has brought her to her knees. But rather than collapse under the weight of her affliction, Foster, a warrior, says: 

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 can only imagine how terrifying it must be for her to know exactly what her kids are dealing with, but, hopefully, her powerful voice will rally others to continue all efforts toward finding a cure.
