ATLANTA (AP) _ Jimmy Carter’s grandson says no cancer was detected the last time the former president underwent a scan.

Jason Carter told The Associated Press in a text message that his grandfather told him that doctors “couldn’t find any cancer in his most recent scan.”

The 91-year-old former president apparently shared the good news before giving a Sunday School lesson at Maranatha Baptist Church in his hometown of Plains, Georgia.

Jill Stuckey, a church leader who was present, said Carter had announced that a brain scan this week showed no cancer.
