Prayers are now being sought by the Osmond family especially by the brother-sister duo, Donny and Marie, for their brother, Jimmy, who suffered a stroke during his performance last week.
During a performance of Peter Pan in Birmingham, England last week, Jimmy Osmond, the youngest of the Osmond children, suffered a stroke. He was playing Captain Hook and finished the show before being rushed to the hospital.
According to BBC News, Jimmy’s representative shared that he pushed through the performance and was later diagnosed with a stroke. It was not his first though. Also, according to USA Today, Jimmy suffered a stroke back in 2004 that was caused by a hole in his heart that didn’t close after birth.
