The sad news about Jimmy Carter, former US President.

Former US president Jimmy Carter discontinued medical treatment and entered hospice care. The 98-year-old would be transferred to a hospice after “a succession of brief hospital stays,” according to a statement released by the Carter Center.

“Former US President Jimmy Carter chose to spend his final days at home with his family today and accept hospice care rather than additional medical treatment,” the statement said.

“He has the full support of his family and medical personnel,” it said. The Carter family wants privacy at this time and appreciates the concerns of his many followers.

President Carter reigned over the country for four years, from 1977 to 1981. He launched the Carter Center in 1982, helping many humanitarian endeavors.
President Carter was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for his work in co-founding the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, which supports worldwide disease prevention and eradication initiatives, election monitoring, and peace talks.

In 1994, he went to North Korea on the peace mission of then-President Bill Clinton. In 2007, he proclaimed his membership in The Elders, a group of independent international leaders, including Nelson Mandela and Kofi Annan, who collaborate on peace and human rights issues.
