Cover Art Revealed For Yolanda Hadid's Memoir ‘Believe Me: My Battle With The Invisible Disability Of Lyme Disease’

The cover art for Yoland Hadid's forthcoming memoir, Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease has been revealed. The cover for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star's book was released on Wednesday, offering up a first look at what's to come.

The book will be published by St. Martin's Press in February 2017, and Hadid  reveals why she felt it was time to write about hr journey with Lyme Disease. "Once I started to uncover the mystery of chronic Lyme disease and the stigma around it, I felt a strong sense of obligation towards the millions of people suffering from this debilitating disease to share my journey and to be a voice for those who can't be heard," she told The Daily Dish.

"I would hope that anyone who watched or knows about my journey will take the time to read Believe Me as I truly hope it will educate and open people's hearts in order to gain a much deeper respect and understanding of this journey," Yolanda says. "The message here is really about how we can learn to be less judgmental and deal with chronically ill people in a more kind, compassionate and understanding way."

Of course it is those already suffering from Lyme disease that Yolanda was thinking of when writing the book. "I have met so many debilitated and financially devastated patients, parents who've sold their homes in order to pay for their children's treatment all while fighting to keep them alive. I documented my journey with photos, daily logs, lab results and short videos, because I wasn't sure I would make it through alive, but I did. I am here to tell my story because we need a cure affordable for all."

Yolanda says the memoir will contain information on every treatment she's tried over the last five years — both the ones that helped and the ones that didn't. "I was raised to blindly trust doctors, but learned I had to be my own health advocate," she explains.
