Drake White revealed to People in July that he is suffering from arteriovenous mallformation, a tangle of abnormal blood vessels connecting arteries and veins in the brain.
The news comes to light after Drake stumbled onstage and cut short his performance in Roanoke, Va., on Aug. 16.
Drake says he was diagnosed with the condition in January after suffering from headaches. He is currently undergoing a series of “embolization procedures to cut off blood flow to the affected vessels.”
“Hey my friends—I am beyond overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, prayers and good vibes the past few days,” said Drake via Instagram. “I’ve felt them all. I’m gonna take some time to rest up and I can’t wait to get back out there with y’all.”
