Yolanda revealed her children were plagued by the same tickborne, often debilitating disease she's battled.

"When my 2 youngest children, Bella and Anwar, were diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in early 2012, watching my babies struggle in silence in order to support me in my journey, struck the deepest core of hopelessness inside of me," Yolanda, who has been hospitalized for prolonged periods told TMZ.

Yolanda made the announcement when she received the "Power of One" award in New York City, Thursday night.
