With the airing of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we can finally hear Gigi’s speech at the Global Lyme Alliance inaugural gala. She talks about her mother battling lyme disease and no one could hold back tears.
“Tonight, we are honoring the person that, more than anyone I know, is hope for Lyme disease awareness, my mom,” she said. “For your fight, for your passion, and for making your journey one that will help so many, I’m so proud to honor you with this award.”
That evening, Yolanda announced that both Bella, 19, and Anwar, 16, were also diagnosed with the disease in 2012.
Although Gigi is fortunate enough to be free of Lyme disease she has used her power in fame to help increase awareness of it.
