In a touching Instagram post, Bella Hadid shared an old note from 2014 written by her treating doctor in Brussels. The note revealed that she was diagnosed with Lyme disease at the young age of 16.
For the past decade, Bella has faced numerous challenges due to this disease, both physically and emotionally. Despite her struggles, she’s been using her platform to shed light on Lyme disease and raise public awareness.
Bella’s caption alongside the medical note reads: “The little me that suffered would be so proud of grown me for not giving up on myself.”
