Jenna Bush Hager Tearfully Opens Up About Barbara Bush's Health

Barbara Bush, wife of George H.W. Bush and mother to George W. Bush, is seriously ill and has chosen to stop receiving care to prolong her life, according to a statement from her family on Sunday.

"I believe America is going to be better off if every family establishes a culture of service to others", Bush said.

McGrath said she has been treated for decades for Graves disease, which is a thyroid condition.

Throughout a long life in the public eye, Bush was a fierce advocate for her husband and sons, including former Florida governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush. She also had a heart surgery in 2009 for a severe narrowing of her main heart valve and was hospitalised a year before that for surgery on a perforated ulcer. In her past interviews, the wife of the former U.S. President George H.W. Bush admitted that the necklace was meant to hide her neck wrinkles.

"I pray", Bush said.

"It will not surprise those who know her that Barbara Bush has been a rock in the face of her failing health, worrying not for herself - thanks to her abiding faith - but for others", McGrath said. "Focusing on the family is the best place to start to make this country more literate, and I still feel that being more literate will help us solve so numerous other problems facing our society", she wrote in her 1994 memoir.
