Despite Injuries And Ailments, Jimmy Carter Continues To Teach Sunday School
Jimmy Carter has faced a number of health issues in recent years, including undergoing brain surgery in November, but the 95-year-old former president refuses to allow such incidents to stop him from living life.
Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, were spotted attending services at the Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains on Sunday, according to The Associated Press. The couple has been married for more than 70 years.
The AP listed off a slew of ailments both big and small that the oldest-ever former president has met head on in recent years, including hospitalization for a urinary tract infection earlier this month, his surgery for bleeding on the brain last month, a hospitalization in October after a fall left his hip fractured, and another fall resulting in a head injury that required 14 stitches.
That’s not to mention Carter’s battle with cancer in 2015, when he was diagnosed with melanoma, and “after having parts of his liver removed and undergoing radiation, immunotherapy and treatment for brain lesions, he announced that he was cancer-free.”
