Yolanda Foster continues to maintain her positive outlook on life despite an ongoing battle with Lyme disease, finding joy in even the smallest of triumphs.

In a new photo shared to her Instagram account, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star stretches and lifted her legs with the aid of who appeared to be a physical therapist.

Foster appears focused, in zebra printed leggings and a simple white top, as the man pushes on her ankle.

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop,” Foster wrote. “#SmallVictories #ComingBack #LymeDiseaseAwareness.”

It’s been three years since the former model was first diagnosed with the debilitating disease, a struggle she’s candid about.

The 51-year-old also recently revealed her daughter Bella Hadid, 19, and Anwar Hadid, 16, suffer from the chronic, tickborne illness.

“This award is for Anwar and Bella. This is my token and my promise to you that I will not allow you to live a life of pain and suffering. I will walk to the end of the earth to find a cure so that you can live a healthy life that you deserve,” Foster said in an emotional speech at the Global Lyme Alliance inaugural gala earlier this month.

During the ceremony, Foster said she “mostly lives her life in bed” and called her illness the “darkest days of my life.”

Despite it all, Foster vowed to never stop fighting – an attitude continually reflected in her public persona and on her social channels.

“I’m gonna make the rest of my life, the best of my life,” she said on Sunday.
