Billy Graham’s Health

December 1, 2011 by staff 

Billy Graham’s Health, American evangelist Billy Graham was hospitalized, Wednesday, November 30, near his home in the U.S. state of North Carolina for evaluation and treatment of his lungs amid concerns he may suffer pneumonia, his organization said.

The 93-year-old Graham, an adviser to several U.S. presidents who preached to millions around the world, arrived at Mission Hospital in Asheville, where he will be “tested for pneumonia” after suffering from congestion, a cough and a slight fever, added spokesman A. Larry Ross.

Upon admittance, he was alert, smiling and waving at hospital staff, said the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA).

It quoted Graham’s personal physician, Lucian Rice as saying that “Mr. Graham’s condition is stable.”

While no date has been set for discharge, “Mr. Graham is looking forward to returning home to spend the upcoming Christmas holiday with his family,” BGEA added in a statement monitored by BosNewsLife.

Graham was previously hospitalized for successful treatment of pneumonia in May, 2011.

He resumed his ongoing program of physical therapy and normal activity shortly after release, according to his staff. This included finalizing his most recent book, “Nearing Home,” published last month, and a new project “reaffirming the evangelistic message he has preached for more than 60 years,” explained BGEA.

For six decades, Graham led a worldwide crusade-based ministry that packed stadiums with believers and allowed him to counsel every U.S. president since Harry Truman.
