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 me that the doctors couldn’t find any cancer in his most recent scan.”

The elder Carter 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.

Carter, 91, announced in August that he had been diagnosed with melanoma that spread to his brain.
