Yolanda Hadid will sit down with Dr. Oz on his talk show on Tuesday to detail her battle with Lyme disease. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom will candidly discuss her struggles with the disease — and the important role her three children, Gigi, Bella, and Anwar, have played in keeping her faith strong in the face of adversity. "There were nights where Gigi, at three o'clock in the morning, had to drive me to the emergency room because I had such severe inflammation in my brain that I'd be balling on the floor like please take me to the hospital," Yolanda revealed in a preview clip, posted on People. "So you know, and not just Gigi driving, Anwar and Bella in the back of the car and the three of us going to the hospital. And, them being there, they learn to take charge and be my strength."
Yolanda, holding back tears, added that seeing her three kids is what keeps her strong. "My children is what kept me alive. I remember just waiting for them to get out of school, just to give them a hug and look at them for hope," she said. "There were many days that I really didn't want to live anymore. But when you look at your children it's not a choice anymore, right? You have to. You have to get through. You have to keep fighting and searching to get well."
In addition to her upcoming appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, Yolanda's discussed her illness in detail on RHOBH this season. Watch her explain what life has been like in the wake of her Lyme disease diagnosis, below.
