In August, Former President Jimmy Carter revealed he had what was tantamount to a death sentence — he had been diagnosed with melanoma. This week he released a miraculous good news statement, saying his most recent MRI scan showed no signs of cancer. Former President Carter, 91, surprised the congregation at his church when he shared that his most recent MRI showed no evidence of the four previously diagnosed melanoma brain lesions that had been discovered earlier this summer, and – incredibly — no signs of new cancer growth was found. In August, Carter began treatment with a promising new therapy that works with the immune system, as well as surgery to remove part of his liver, and targeted radiation therapy. This pioneering immunotherapy has shown great promise in treating cancer, said Dr. David Lawson, who is one of Carter’s physicians at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, and a prominent researcher into the effects of immunotherapy. Just five years ago, Carter’s diagnosis would have undoubtedly been equivalent to a death sentence. However, state of the art research has led to new success and encouraging results in the treatment of cancer through influencing the immune system to rally against cancer cells. These new immunotherapeutic treatments help the immune system seek out and destroy cancer cells by boosting the body’s own immune system to fight against the disease. Carter said he plans to continue this successful treatment. Carter’s grandson, James Carter, said, “There’s no cancer in his body at this point. He’s not going to stop doing the treatment, but at this point, there’s no cancer. It’s incredible news.” Jan Williams, a member of Carter’s congregation is hopeful, saying, “It’s like getting the biggest Christmas gift that you could ever want. This week was just horrible in the word in terms of all the bad things happening — how wonderful in the midst of all this to get such wonderful, encouraging news.” The former president was described as “upbeat and active” by another grandson, former state Senator Jason Carter, who said his grandfather was doing well physically, emotionally, and mentally throughout the treatment. Jason Carter had taken over as chair of the Carter Center as a precaution, as it was believed that the cancer would force his grandfather to slow his day-to day responsibilities, however, miraculously, “There’s been no evidence of that at all”, he exclaimed.
