Yolanda Hadid has always been candid about her journey with Lyme disease and while she’s been out of the pubic eye for awhile, taking care of herself and traveling, she gave fans and update when she appeared on the red carpet Thursday night at the Uniting for a Lyme-Free World Gala in New York, hosted by the Global Lyme Alliance.
“I’m actually feeling really good. I’m probaby at 85, 90 percent,” she told the Daily Dish. “I just started a new clinical trial and I’m really excited because I’m on day 12 and I’m feeling strangely good. So hopefully after 60 days this might be the end for me. I mean that’d be perfect but I don’t know. We don’t know.”
Yolanda was joined by her daughter Bella, who just started the same trial. “I just started [the same trial], so hopefully I’m getting there,” she explained.
“We keep trying. There is no cure. In the medical business, the pharmaceutical business is a $700 billion business and yet there’s no cure for Lyme disease, even though the first case was diagnosed in 1972,” Yolanda said. “I mean, you go and figure why is there no cure, why is this room full of people that are struggling and suffering? We don’t know.”
“It’s almost like a lifestyle,” Yolanda said. “She just came back from Tokyo. She’s been in bed for three days, complete resting, sleeping, sleeping, sleeping,” her mom said. “And then she’ll get up and go to work and do what she has to do. I mean, obviously, at this age there’s so many obligations I think that for now we’re juggling until we can find a cure and get back to real life.”
