His son, Franklin Graham said that Billy had been hospitalized last month with a respiratory infection; though he recovered it has left him drained and fatigued. There is also a sharp decline in his health.
"He just hasn't been able to get his strength back," Franklin Graham said. "His vitals are good, but he's just extremely weak."
Though he has been ailing for many years, Billy Graham, as people will recall had travelled far and wide to help people connect with God. He has always connected with the masses to help them realize the true purpose of their existence.
He has been listed in polls as one among the "Ten Most Admired Men in the World."
"My one purpose in life," he said, "is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which, I believe, comes through knowing Christ."
