Jimmy Carter Announces That He Has Cancer

Former President Jimmy Carter announced in a statement Wednesday that he was diagnosed with cancer after undergoing liver surgery.

“I will be rearranging my schedule as necessary so I can undergo treatment by physicians at Emory Healthcare,” Carter said in a statement. “A more complete public statement will be made when facts are known, possibly next week.”

Carter, 90, had surgery earlier this month to remove a small mass in his liver.
