Former President Jimmy Carter has released a statement and it doesn't sound good at all:
Recent liver surgery revealed that I have cancer that now is in other parts of my body. I will be rearranging my schedule as necessary so I can undergo treatment by physicians at Emory Healthcare. A more complete public statement will be made when facts are known, possibly next week.Jimmy Carter has lived a full and meaningful 90 years in service to his country and the world, but we're not ready to see him go just yet.
Please make a fast and full recovery, President Carter. Our country and the world still needs you for many more years to come!
