Former U.s. President Jimmy Carter Has Won His Battle With Cancer After His Latest Scan Results Showed No Signs Of Any Tumours.
The 91 year old went public with his health crisis in August (15), shortly after undergoing surgery to remove a small mass in his liver.
Carter subsequently revealed the disease had spread to his brain, but this weekend (06Dec15), the ex-leader shared his good fortune with students at a Sunday School class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Georgia.
"He said he got a scan this week and the cancer was gone," church goer and close friend Jill Stuckey told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "The church, everybody here, just erupted in applause."
Carter has since confirmed the news in a statement which reads: "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."
