Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of prominent Christian evangelist Billy Graham, asks for prayers for her child, Rachel-Ruth Wright, after she had two heart attacks a few days back.
Last Saturday, Rachel was rushed to the hospital when she had her first heart attack. Catheterization was performed by the doctors immediately. Sadly, they had to do another catheterization the following day, after she suffered from a second heart attack. Anne shared their ordeal on her Facebook account.
