Former President Jimmy Carter who revealed this summer that he had been diagnosed with advanced cancer that had been found on his liver and brain, announced Sunday that the cancer is gone.
"My most recent MRI brain scan did not reveal any signs of the original cancer spots nor any new ones. I will continue to receive regular three-week immunotherapy treatments of pembrolizumab," Carter, 91, said in a statement posted on his Facebook page Sunday.

Her name had become synonymous with the social media hashtag #StillStrong, and that would be an accurate description of the resolve of 5-year-old Leah Still. Still had been diagnosed with Stage-4 neuroblastoma in June of last year. At one point, cancer had penetrated her bones and she was given a 50/50 chance of survival. After a year and-a-half of treatment, however, the little girl has been declared cancer-free.
Leah's father, former Cincinnati Bengal defensive lineman Devon Still, announced Wednesday that his daughter was in remission. The doting dad posted an Instagram message to followers: "Thanks for all the support and prayers! Just got the phone call that her scans showed NED (no evidence of disease)!"
