Taking to Instagram, Foster posted a no-makeup selfie of herself wrapped up in her duvet. She captioned the picture with, “Just because some ppl are done with your journey, doesn’t mean your journey is done……..#AnotherWastedSaturday#LifeFromTheSideLines #Spoonie#LymeDiseaseAwereness#DeterminedToFindACure#AffordableForAll PS: Bad Selfie Day.”
It’s not often that celebs allow fans to see pictures of themselves without makeup, but Foster’s raw picture and powerful words have inspired fans — and they shared their feelings with her in the post’s comments section.
“Aww I’m sure this cold weather doesn’t help with your pains xoxo love you for being a REAL person and not always showing the glamorous life like some others we know but no names xoxo@yolandahfoster,” hollybrumley14 wrote.
“@Yolandahfoster any day you are able to take a selfie is not a bad selfie day!! YOU are an inspiration to those without hope,” shared sjeyre.
“You inspire me!” debbie.wires wrote.
Other comments include, “You inspire so much,” “Be strong!@yolandahfoster you’re truly an inspiration,” and “You are such an inspiration xx.”
Of course, there were also a few trolls commenting on the post. Some decided to comment on Foster’s looks while others claimed she was searching for sympathy, something that her fans were quick to shut down.
