Former President Jimmy Carter says he is cancer free

Former President Jimmy Carter announced he is cancer free Sunday, more than three months after the 91-year-old started treatment for melanoma tumors.

“My most recent MRI brain scan did not reveal any signs of the original cancer spots nor any new ones,” Carter said in a statement.

Carter’s grandson, James Carter, confirmed to the Atlanta Journal Constitution that a recent test showed his grandfather was cancer-free.

“There’s no cancer in his body at this point,” James Carter told the AJC. “He’s not going to stop doing the treatment, but at this point, there’s no cancer. It’s incredible news.”

In August, Carter said that a liver surgery had revealed the presence of cancer.
