Former President Carter Receives Cancer Diagnosis, Plans To Continue Work To Eradicate Guinea Worm

NPR: What Jimmy Carter Did After His ‘Involuntary Retirement’
“…[Former President Jimmy Carter] has witnessed firsthand the need to fight Guinea worm, river blindness, and elephantiasis. … Now Carter is himself facing a disease — cancer. … Cancer is one disease that we are still far away from eliminating. But back in January, Carter was beaming at the fact that the Carter Center’s efforts had brought Guinea worm to the edge of eradication. … Here’s hoping that Carter will live to witness the end of Guinea worm…” (Cole, 8/20).
