    That is actually awesome news. I am not a fan of his presidency, but have much respect for him as a humanitarian

    I'm not sure how this got to be front page news... it's a second hand rumor from a creepy lady at his church. No actual announcement or confirmation from JC or his family.

    Well, whatever the truth is. Carter's already had a long and productive life. He himself said he was ready for any outcome.

    A person who dies of cancer decades younger than him, or from a sudden heart attack or other cause, represents a greater tragedy than going at 91 with the life Carter's led. Of course I wish him the best, and continued life, his loved ones also need to be considered.

    "Washington (CNN)Jimmy Carter's cancer is gone, the former president announced on Sunday.

    "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 three-week immunotherapy treatments of pembrolizumab," Carter said in a statement.

    Carter, 91, first revealed the news in front of a Sunday School class he was teaching at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia.

    Carter's health announcement was first reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution."


    That's great news. Here's to many more productive years. Carter wouldn't have it any other way.
