Since the Hadid family’s step onto the high fashion and pop culture scenes, general knowledge of Lyme disease has spread. The Hadid children’s mother, Real Housewives star Yolanda Foster, has been outspoken about her own struggle with Lyme disease. She announced in 2012 that her son, Anwar Hadid, and daughter, Bella Hadid, were also diagnosed with the disease.

If you’re curious as to how so many in the Hadid family struggle with this sickness, you’re not alone. Stylecaster.com talked to Daniel Cameron, MD, MPH, a medical expert on Lyme disease about the matter.

“It’s pretty common for people in the same family to share the same yard, same exposure, same travels, and same animals [where the ticks survive], so many times you’ll get clusters of the disease within the family itself,” Cameron told Stylecaster.com’s Jasmine Garnsworthy.
