San Antonio pastor and devotional author Max Lucado announced Monday that he has been diagnosed with a serious cardiovascular condition and asked for prayer.
The 66-year-old said his doctors found a bulge in the large blood vessel closest to his heart, called an ascending aortic aneurysm. According to the National Institutes of Health, if aortic aneurysm splits or ruptures, it can become life-threatening, but early diagnosis and treatment can prevent fatal complications.
Though his aortic aneurysm is “sizable” and “surgery is possible,” Lucado told followers he plans to continue his normal ministry routine and wait to see whether it grows before undergoing a procedure.
