Former US President (39th) Jimmy Carter moved to hospice at the age of 98. Carter acted as the U.S. President and served his country. From November 2, 1976, to January 20, 1881,
During his presidency, he made various remarkable achievements. Panama Canal treaties, the SALT II treaty with the Soviet Union, and the establishment of robust diplomatic relationships with the People's Republic of China highlight his successive democratic leadership. Furthermore, Jimmy Carter is the only U.S. President who lived for such an extensive period after moving out from the White House.
“After a series of short hospital stays, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter today decided to spend his remaining time at home with his family and receive hospice care… he has the full support of his family and his medical team.”
In recent years, he suffered from several health issues, together with melanoma, a cancer of the skin that begins in the moles but has the tendency to affect other tissues and is closely associated with skin cancer. Melanoma spread to his brain and liver. However, he received the treatment patiently. Other ailments he suffered recently are a broken hip, a urinary tract infection a fractured pelvis.
President Carter was born in the small-scale farming Plains, Georgia. Prior to his nomination as a candidate for presidential elections, he had worked as a peanut farmer. Carter also served as the governor of his hometown, Georgia.
The 39th U.S. President had rocky four years, managing his country that was marred with economic woes at home and a brokering deal between Egypt and Israel (peace treaty). Later, he worked as a human rights and social activist for social justice and humanitarian causes.
Carter’s post-presidential activities made him revered among the public. Time and again, Habitat for Humanity volunteers could see him building houses with a hammer.
Jimmy Carter has occasionally voiced his concerns on political issues. In 2018, he asked Georgia’s governor Brian Kemp to resign. Many people were keeping their eyes on this matter but Carter didn't reveal anything regarding his personal plea to Kemp. At that time, Brian Kemp was the secretary of state while running for the Governor's post and many things were going wrong in his office.
In 2019, he addressed Donald Trump, as "an illegitimate president". On the contrary, in 2020, at the Democratic National Convention, he supported Joe Biden publically in a video.
In short, Jimmy Carter will remain in his home from now on with his family and professional medical staff unless his health becomes better.
