EX- PRES­I­DENT CARTER SAYS HE’S ENDED CAN­CER THER­APY

Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION/ WORLD - Christo­pher Buchanan, WXIA- TV, At­lanta

Af­ter sev­eral rounds of a new form of can­cer ther­apy, for­mer pres­i­dent Jimmy Carter an­nounced at his home­town church Sun­day that he is no longer re­ceiv­ing can­cer treat­ments.

Carter, 91, was first di­ag­nosed with a form of melanoma that spread to his brain in Au­gust 2015.

Af­ter three weeks of a spe­cial ther­apy treat­ment, he an­nounced that there were no signs of can­cer on his brain.

Carter ex­plained the pro­ce­dure he’d went through to his Sun­day school class at Maranatha Bap­tist Church in Plains, Ga., NBC News re­ported.

And as he gave the lat­est up­date, an au­di­ble sigh of re­lief could be heard across the sanc­tu­ary.
