The 90-year-old had surgery to remove a small "mass" from his liver. The surgery revealed the cancer is wide spread, reports say.
Please report typos...
The following statement from former President Jimmy Carter, who will turn 91 in October, was just released by the Carter Center in Atlanta:
“Recent liver surgery revealed that I have cancer that now is in other parts of my body. I will be rearranging my schedule as necessary so I can undergo treatment by physicians at Emory Healthcare. A more complete public statement will be made when facts are known, possibly next week.”
Last week, the Carter Center had disclosed the the former president had undergone elective surgery to “remove a small mass in his liver.” No further details were offered at the time.
There’s plenty more here in our main story, that will be updated through the evening. A piece:
Jill Stuckey, a close friend of Jimmy and his wife Rosalynn, said residents have been “praying ever since we found out about the small mass on his liver.”
“He’s done everything right. He exercises, he eats right, that’s how he’s gotten to be 90 and (still) going to different continents,” said Stuckey, who helps manage the crowds of visitors at Maranatha Baptist Church when the former president gives lessons.
There’s a history of cancer in Carter’s family, she added, “but if anyone can beat it, it’s Jimmy Carter.”
