In August this year, 90-year-old Carter became ill. The ex-president said that he had melanoma and that he began treatment abroad.
Carter received cancer treatment abroad with a drug from an American pharmaceutical company that strengthens the immune system so that it can fight cancer. This drug has also been tested in cancer centers in Israel.
December 6, Carter made a statement. He said recent checks have shown that there are no cancerous tumors and metastases in his body, indicating a high effectiveness in treating melanoma abroad.
