Former President Jimmy Carter says he has cancer and it has spread
WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter has cancer that has spread from his liver to other parts of his body, he announced Wednesday.
Carter, 90, had a “small mass” removed from his liver during surgery earlier this month. At the time, he received a prognosis for a full recovery.
But, he said Wednesday, “Recent liver surgery revealed that I have cancer that now is in other parts of my body.”
Carter said he will receive treatment at Emory University in Atlanta and that more information will be released as soon as next week.
