Billy Graham’s Granddaughter Enters Rehab After ‘Life-Threatening’ Heart Attacks
Rachel-Ruth Lotz Wright, the granddaughter of Billy Graham, enrolled in cardiac rehab after suffering two “life-threatening” heart attacks.
Her mother, Anne Graham Lotz, shared an update on Facebook Wednesday afternoon, saying it has been “pure joy” to join her daughter Morrow alongside Wright’s healing journey.
Wright enrolled in the North Carolina Heart and Vascular Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina, where her ministry and family are based.
She was first hospitalized Saturday night Jan. 8 with a heart attack and the next day had another heart attack.
The doctors initially diagnosed her with Broken Heart Syndrome, but later Lotz said a cardiologist diagnosed her with the “extremely serious” SCAD: Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection.
A few days later, she was released from the hospital to do an at-home recovery.
Lotz called the cardiac rehab “a critical first step towards recovery” for her daughter.
“Thank you for continuing to pray for all of us in this faith-stretching journey,” Lotz said. “Please pray for Rachel-Ruth’s restoration to full health and strength with no set-backs or complications.”
The Bible teacher shared a verse from Psalm, encouraging people to praise God with them: “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me…”
