The cancer was first discovered in Carter’s liver
ATLANTA (AP) – President Barack Obama says he and his wife are praying for former President Jimmy Carter as he undergoes treatment for cancer on his brain.
Obama said in a tweet Thursday afternoon that Carter “is as good a man as they come,” adding: “We’re all pulling for you, Jimmy.”
Carter spoke about his cancer diagnosis earlier in the day, his first public remarks on the disease since he announced the diagnosis last week. Carter said during the morning news conference that the Obamas had called him to wish him well.
The cancer was first discovered in Carter’s liver; melanoma was then discovered on four spots on his brain as well.
