Jimmy Carter cancer in advance stage: ex prez gets support from all around

Former president of United State Jimmy Carter has said that he is suffering from cancer. He reportedly told the media that he is suffering from liver cancer and that the illness has started impacting other parts of his body.

The 91-year old politician who was the President of United States from 1977 to 1981 and who also won a Nobel Peace Prize has not been in great health for some times now.

Nonetheless the news about liver cancer has come as a shock to many of his long time fans. While talking about the development, the former US president said, “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

Jimmy Carter who is known to be a great orator and has also authored a couple of books rose to be the US president after soaking in enough political exposure at local level in Georgia. He served two terms as a Georgia State Senator, from 1963 to 1967, and one as the Governor of Georgia, from 1971 to 1975.

The next year he won his biggest battle as he was elected President in 1976, defeating incumbent president Gerald Ford in a very close election (the Electoral College margin of 57 votes was the closest since 1916, and no election featuring an incumbent since 1976 has had a closer popular vote), running as an outsider who promised truth in government in the wake of the Watergate scandal. But his political career was cut short when he was defeated for re-election in 1980 by Republican Ronald Reagan.

He is not the first in his family to suffer from cancer. The Carter family has a history of pancreatic cancer, including his parents, two sisters and younger brother Billy Carter who all died from the disease. Carter told the New York Times in 2007 that he and other relatives had given blood for genetic studies seeking to help doctors diagnose the disease.

While talking about why other members suffered from cancer, he said his family members might be suffering from the disease thanks to smoking. “The only difference between me and my father and my siblings was that I never smoked a cigarette,” said Carter.

In the meantime President Barack Obama has wished him fast recovery. Obama who is vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, spoke with Carter on Wednesday “to wish him a full and speedy recovery,” White House spokesman Eric Schultz said. In the statement President said, “Jimmy, you’re as resilient as they come, and along with the rest of America, we are rooting for you”.
