Drake White has unveiled some concerning news regarding his health. Last week, while performing on stage in Roanoke, VA, the singer songwriter began to stumble and nearly collapsed. After being rushed off the stage, worry and concern began to circulate.
Earlier this year, the 35 year old singer/songwriter was diagnosed with an arteriovenous malformation (AVM). AVM is an abnormal tangle of arteries and veins in the brain that disrupts normal blood flow. He is now sharing this news with the country music community.
“It was basically stealing blood from my brain,” White told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. “The neurologist told me that I should be thankful it was caught in time, because it could have caused a stroke.”
Since the diagnosis, White has been going through a series of embolization procedures. He is now taking the time to focus on his health and family.
“I’m not telling this story for me,” White told PEOPLE. “Someone needs to hear it and God wants me to share it. It will help people believe in miracles, and I will feel that energy. The world needs that kind of energy right now.”
