Jimmy Carter, the 98-year-old former president of the United States, will be under hospice care. Information that the former politician wants “the time left to him to spend at home with his family, rather than undergoing additional medical interventions” was provided by the Carter Center – a charity founded by the former US leader.

Ex-president USA Jimmy Carter will be in hospice care “after a series of short hospital stays,” the Carter Center said on Saturday, quoted by Reuters. “He has the full support of his family and medical team. The family requests privacy during this time and is grateful for the concern shown by the many people who admire him,” the statement said.

In August 2015, Carter informed the public that he had been diagnosed with a malignant tumor with metastases to the brain and liver. Less than half a year later, in March 2016, after surgery, radiation and immunotherapy, Carter announced that the treatment was stopped because the tests showed no signs of cancer.

Carter, 98, was president of the United States from January 1977 to January 1981 for the Democratic Party. He played a key role in brokering the Camp David Accords that led to the landmark Egypt-Israel peace treaty.

He was succeeded as president by Republican Ronald Reagan.

Nobel Peace Prize

Carter, after leaving the White House, was involved in humanitarian initiatives. In 2002, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his “tireless efforts to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to promote democracy and human rights and to promote economic and social development.”
