 Former American President Jimmy Carter is Now 'cancer-Free'

Former American President Jimmy Carter was undergoing treatment for cancer that was removed from his liver, but had spread to his brain. Carter has now been cured of his brain cancer.

The 91-year-old said, "My most recent MRI brain scan did not reveal any signs of the original cancer spots nor any new ones. I would continue to receive regular three-week immunotherapy treatments of pembrolizumab."

Reportedly Jimmy also shared the news with a class he teaches at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains in Georgia. The Nobel Peace Prize laureate said, "When I went for an MRI this week, doctors did not find any cancer at all. A lot of people had prayed for me and I appreciate that."
