Former President Jimmy Carter has cancer, it was revealed on the Carter Center website.

The 90-year old humanitarian made the announcement with a short press release: “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.”
