Jimmy Carter Is Cancer Free.
Jimmy Carter, 91 announces he is Brain Cancer free this week. “My most recent MRI brain scan did not reveal any signs of the original cancer spots nor any new ones,” Carter said in a statement on Sunday. “I will continue to receive regular three-week immunotherapy treatments of pembrolizumab,” he added, referring to a common cancer drug. “A lot of people prayed for me, and I appreciate that.” The guardian reports he shared the news on Sunday with worshippers at his Baptist church in Georgia where he teaches Bible study.
Doctors are continuing to monitor any changes, but the prognosis is good. Originally an operation to remove a growth on Carter’s liver revealed that cancer had further spread to his brain. The treatment along with the prayers and well wishes of people seems to have done the trick. Jimmy Carter is amongst the longest living former Presidents.
