SHARE Graham improving, may attend meeting

Billy Graham is regaining his strength after several weeks of therapy for Parkinson's disease and should be able to attend a world gathering of evangelists in Amsterdam later this month, his doctors at the Mayo Clinic say.

The clinic on Friday issued a statement saying Graham's medical condition has greatly improved.

The 81-year-old evangelist was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease about six years ago and was hospitalized last month after undergoing a procedure to relieve fluid buildup around his brain.

Graham plans to be in Amsterdam for the evangelists meeting July 29 through Aug. 6.
