As previously reported, money has been no object to Foster’s music producer husband David Foster, in his quest to bring his wife back to health.

"It’s extremely hard for David watch Yolanda try to struggle to find a word, or recall something from the recent past," an insider told Radar. "David has vowed to spend whatever is needed to get her cured. The treatment outside of the United States isn’t covered by insurance, and it’s very expensive. Luckily, they can afford it."

The source went on to say that "the only positive that has come out of this is Yolanda and David have grown even closer."
