Cancer diagnosis

12 Aug, 2015

Carter says that recent liver surgery revealed he had cancer that had spread to other parts of his body. He does not say where the cancer had spread. The Carter Center in Atlanta says that he had undergone elective surgery at Emory University Hospital to remove a small mass in his liver. It adds that the operation had proceeded without issues and that the prognosis was excellent for a full recovery.

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.
