President Carter's Final Chapter
Jimmy Carter, the 39th President of the United States, is now 98 years old and his health has declined. Due to his condition, he has decided to stop receiving medical treatment and is currently at home with his loved ones, receiving hospice care.
The announcement regarding President Carter's decision was made by The Carter Center, following his brief hospital stays. Keeping the American public informed about his grandfather's condition, Jason Carter, one of his 22 grandchildren, has been providing updates to the press.
Jason praised his grandfather's excellent condition and revealed that President Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter are enjoying quality family time at home. Rosalynn has faithfully supported President Carter for over 70 years, and this July marks their 77th wedding anniversary.
Amid difficult times, the Carters stay rooted in their unwavering faith, finding solace in knowing they are not in control. Their faith grounds them, making this moment bearable. Jason Carter also expressed gratitude for the overwhelming love and support his grandfather has received during his health challenges.
President Carter, a man of faith, cherishes peanut butter ice cream, a flavor that represents his roots in managing a family's peanut farm before his presidency in 1977. Despite losing the 1980 election, his affection for this delicious treat remains unwavering.
The Carter Foundation was founded in 1982 based on a core commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering. With the support of his wife and Emory University, President Carter embarked on this endeavor, aiming to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health.
Throughout the past few years, President Carter has faced various health challenges. In 2015, he valiantly battled cancer, displaying remarkable resilience. Additionally, he has suffered multiple injuries from falls within his home, including a broken hip, forehead injury, black eye, and minor pelvic fracture.
As President Carter approaches his 99th birthday on October 1, he holds the distinction of being the longest-living President in history. Surpassing the late George H.W. Bush, who passed away at the age of 94 five years ago, President Carter's enduring presence stands as a testament to his remarkable life and legacy.
