Former President Jimmy Carter says he’s been diagnosed with cancer.
During a recent elective liver surgery, doctors found that cancer had spread to other parts of Carter’s body, according to a statement released Wednesday on Carter’s website.
“I will be rearranging my schedule as necessary so I can undergo treatment by physicians at Emory Healthcare,” Carter, 90, said in the statement. “A more complete public statement will be made when facts are known, possibly next week.”
