On June 3, 2020 Amy Grant asked the world to pray as she went into open heart surgery. On August 13 she opened up for the first time about the procedure on Good Morning America. Her open-heart surgery was to fix a condition called partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR), which she’s had since birth. “The only way I can explain my experience would be to ask you to imagine a non-runner who was signed up for a marathon. I didn’t want it, but I had to have it anyway,” she wrote on Instagram.
