On Monday, Former President Jimmy Carter said that an MRI scan earlier in the week showed his cancer is gone.
91-year-old Carter announced this good news to attendees of a Sunday school class he used to teach at Maranath Baptist church in Plains, Georgia.
The Carter Center put out a statement of his behalf saying “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 3-week immunotherapy treatments of pembrolizumab.”
In August Carter revealed that he would go under radiation treatment for several melanoma spots on his brain and liver after he learned a mass removed from his liver was melanoma
Later in August, Carter began a new drug, known as Keytruda, that had proved promising in other patients. “I’ll be prepared for anything that comes,” he said at the time.
