Former President of the United States of America, Jimmy Carter announced today that doctors had found cancer on his brain and that he would begin radiation treatments later in the day.
During a news conference at the Carter Center, Mr. Carter, 90, said that he had four melanoma spots on his brain and that another cancerous mass had been removed from his liver during a procedure on Aug. 3. He had announced last week that he had cancer, but Thursday’s appearance was the first time that he publicly detailed his condition.
“I’m perfectly at ease with whatever comes,” Mr. Carter said. “I do have a deep religious faith, which I’m very grateful for.”
He acknowledged, however, immediate feelings that he “had just a few weeks left” when he first learned of the cancer on his brain.
