The 39th President of the United States, Nobel peace prize winner and founder of the Carter Center announced he has brain cancer.
Jimmy Carter, 90, had previously announced he had liver cancer, but has since learned it spread to other parts of his body. Carter says he is prepared for anything:
It’s in the hands God, whom I worship, and I’ll be prepared for anything that comes,” Carter said. “I’m ready for anything and looking forward to a new adventure.”
The nation’s 39th president told reporters he had hoped the cancer would be confined to his liver, and at one point believed he had only “a few weeks left.” Carter repeatedly said he is now “at ease” with the diagnosis, and is sustained by his family and religious faith.
“I’ve had a wonderful life,” Carter said. “I’ve had thousands of friends.”
