When Yolanda Foster confessed that Lyme disease compromised her ability to read and write, she admitted she tried everything — “from the conventional long-term antibiotics to about every holistic protocol there is to offer” — in an effort to alleviate the symptoms of her disease.
But now, a new report has revealed her husband, David Foster, has spent thousands on a controversial treatment in Singapore.

“Yolanda accompanied David to Singapore as he films ‘Asia Got Talent,’ and she is receiving medical treatment while there,” an insider says. “The medications aren’t approved by the FDA in the United States yet.”
In her blog, Yolanda promised to continue her fight — and admitted to consulting alternative treatments and therapies.

“As tired and hopeless as I feel at times, I have an undeniable spirit that will continue to fight and travel the world until I have the proper answers. I keep reminding myself that I was given this task for a greater purpose, which keeps me driven and motivated to think outside the box to make a difference not only for myself but for all my fellow Lymies suffering some form of this debilitating disease that we know so little about,” she wrote.
“A lot of great medicines and ancient therapies are blocked by the FDA, so that’s why I choose to travel and recognize the value of diverse points of view in medicine. I am a firm believer that God often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad of our greatest call, so even though I have not found a cure, I have faith that I will.”
Though the treatments are expensive, the insider insists David will stop at nothing to get his wife the help she needs.
“Yolanda’s short-term memory has indeed suffered. It’s extremely hard for David to watch Yolanda try to struggle to find a word, or recall something from the recent past. Lyme disease has just ravaged her brain,” the insider tells 'Radar Online.'
“On the outside, Yolanda looks perfectly healthy, but once she starts to talk, it’s obvious that she is truly suffering. The only positive that has come out of this is Yolanda and David have grown even closer.”
