The children Hadid, 54, referred to are Bella Hadid, 22, and Anwar Hadid, 19, although her third child, Gigi Hadid, 23, does not have Lyme Disease.
‘Quite often, I just went to get on with my life and pretend the whole nightmare never happened,’ Hadid said at the gala.
‘Unfortunately I’m back into not feeling good, wanting to crawl into a hole and wait for it all to pass,’the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star added.
She added, ‘But I also understand the higher purpose of my journey is to continue to bring awareness to this awful disease until the change is made.’

Yolanda began to get emotional, when adding what ‘keeps me awake at night’ is not her own journey with this disease, but, ‘the journey of my children and so many children in the world that don’t get the proper treatments they deserve.’
‘Living in today’s world is hard enough, as a healthy child,’ Hadid added. ‘It’s time that we all put an end to this.’
‘If I die next week, next month, next year — this is the most, the greatest cause I have ever fought for,’ she added.
