Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter announced in a latest statement that a recent MRI showed that he does not have cancer any more.

The 91 years old former President of the USA, Jimmy carter was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year. Carter and his Stephanie Wynn shared the news with their congregation at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia.

Carter was teaching Sunday School classes at that time. Atlanta Journal-Constitution was the first to report of Carter’s condition. Carter notes that he missed various classes in May and June.

That was because the doctors had discovered cancer. They operated on his liver to remove the cancerous cells. A later MRI however revealed that Carter had cancer growths in his brain as well in four places. 

Carter received immunotherapy and other treatments. By November, Carter's doctors at Emory University's Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta assured that his treatment had gone well and there were no signs that the cancer had spread.

After this win, Carter announced the good news in a statement which stated that his most recent MRI brain scan did not reveal any signs of the original cancer spots nor any new ones. He said that he will continue to receive regular three-week immunotherapy treatments of pembrolizumab.

He and Wynn announced it publicly to their congregation that rejoiced and celebrated the news. Even though Carter had cancer, he continued giving Sunday School classes. He said that his fate was in the hands of God.
