Mac Powell, lead singer of Christian group Third Day, has revealed that his wife, Aimee, suffered a brain aneurysm.
The singer delivered the news via social media, including Instagram, on Saturday (Nov. 30), sharing that Aimee was taken to the hospital via ambulance after experience an intense headache.
A CT scan determined that there was bleeding in her brain that doctors believed was an aneurysm. She entered a procedure so doctors could directly determine the source of the issue.
