Former President Jimmy Carter revealed Wednesday he has cancer that has spread throughout his body.

In a statement posted on the Carter Center’s website, the 90-year-old Democrat said: “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,” Carter said. “A more complete public statement will be made when facts are known, possibly next week.”
