Billy Graham Told To Take A Break

Doctors gave the Rev. Billy Graham a battery of tests Tuesday and said the world-famous evangelist does not have cancer. But they offered him some advice: Relax.

Doctors at Toronto’s East General Hospital told the evangelist minister to take a break from the pulpit - perhaps as long as three months.

“The man needs a long holiday. He’s got to get away,” said Dr. Michael Bentley-Taylor.

Doctors worry that Graham uses all his strength when he preaches, leaving vulnerable a body weakened by Parkinson’s disease. Tests have not determined what caused Graham to lose blood and collapse last week.
