Praise for Yolanda Hadid and Believe Me:
"Yolanda honestly shares her and her beloved family's serpentine path to recovery from chronic ailments that plague so many in America.” ―Mehmet Oz, M.D., Professor of Surgery, NYP/Columbia
“Challenges are universal. How we face them is what defines us as people. In her inspiring new book, Yolanda shines a light on the puzzling, painful and debilitating reality of living with Lyme. It’s an inspiring story of courage and hope for those diagnosed with the fastest growing infectious disease in America. Her courage is a reminder to us all that with a positive attitude, grit, and the love of family, extraordinary things are possible.” ―Tommy Hilfiger
"In the beginning of my Lyme journey, I felt so hopeless because it was mind blowing how many doctors did not acknowledge my symptoms and this disease until I was eventually diagnosed. Yolanda helped me through the initial process and got me to the specialists I needed to start my road to recovery." ―Avril Lavigne, Singer/Songwriter
"Yolanda Hadid’s healing journey has led her to search far and wide for answers. Her will to never give up and find answers is an inspiring story for anyone who has been told that he or she has a serious, untreatable illness!" ―Dr. Richard Horowitz, New York Times best-selling author of How Can I Get Better? An Action Plan for Treating Resistant Lyme and Chronic Disease
“A well-meaning and often compelling story of one woman's relentless pursuit of an effective treatment for the devastating chronic effects of Lyme disease that should expand public awareness for this deeply misunderstood condition.” ―Kirkus
"Readers will cheer [Yolanda] on as she digs deeper into her story, revealing her spiritual nature, her maternal devotion, and an unwavering and admirable determination.” ―Publishers Weekly

I was extremely fortunate to have found a brilliant integrative Lyme-literate doctor in my area, but many have nowhere to turn and are still searching for effective treatment. Hopefully effective treatment will be easier to obtain as people become more educated about late stage Lyme. Thank you, Yolanda, for your continued efforts to raise awareness!
My traits, priorities and work ethics are very similar to Yolanda's. After years and years seeing variety of doctors and working with a my own concierge Internist I have no answers except knowing I test positive for Epstein-Barr.
Anyway, if you are struggling with these issues or just curious about Yoland's life I believe you'll really enjoy reading this honest well-written book . I am hopeful to find some resolution within these pages. She is careful (understandably) to use the appropriate words when writing about her marriage to David, but I wish she had found a better soul mate... she deserved more attention, understanding, and support no matter how talented, accomplished or special David Foster is.
Additionally, the book reads easily like a memoir. Yolanda incorporates details nicely, so that you feel like she's a personal friend.
If you are a fan of RHBH you will enjoy this personal account of Yolanda. She is a class act that's for sure... and a role model for young women. I wish she would rejointhe show! She was the creme of the crop on that franchise... and I believe her participation on RHBH 100% aided the launch of Gigi's career.
Hopefully, after completing Believe Me I will have some information to assist me in finding the answers.
Thank you Yoland for sharing this personal account. I'm relieved knowing I'm not alone in this bizarre change in my brain and body.
