Former president Jimmy Carter announced on Sunday that his cancer is gone. Carter said in a statement “My most recent MRI brain scan did not reveal any signs of the original cancer spots nor any new ones. I will continue to receive regular three-week immunotherapy treatments of pembrolizumab.”
91 year old Carter, first revealed the news in front of a Sunday School class he was teaching at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia. According to Stephanie Wynn, a 12-year member of the congregation Carter said he’d gone for an MRI last week, and the scan’s results showed that he is cancer-free.
Carter announced in August that doctors had told him that four spots of cancer had spread to his brain. He said his fate “is in the hands of God, whom I worship.”
Three days after the announcement, Carter was teaching Sunday school, per his usual routine.
He had told the class, as he opened his notes at the lectern “Well, I always explain to the class where I’ve been the past couple of weeks. I missed two lessons because toward the end of May (and) first of June it was found that I had cancer, so they removed part of my liver. But then we had another MRI and it showed I have four places in my brain.”
In November, Carter’s doctors at Emory University’s Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta said his treatment had gone well — with no signs the cancer has
spread.The Carter Center said in a statement then that Carter’s “original problem is responding well to treatment.”
