'In God we trust': no ​​more cancer on the scanner!

The famous motto of the United States could apply to its 39e President, Jimmy Carter. After announcing to the whole world in August 2015, that he was suffering from liver cancer, at 91 years old Jimmy Carter was probably thinking of retiring from public life, due to 'long illness', as is the case in these cases.

MBut the history of this President is decidedly not that of everyone! America's best-known Sunday school teacher, he published a book in 2012: 366 Sunday School Lessons, " Through the Year with Jimmy Carter, and the " NIV Lessons from Life Bible (Zondervan) ”.

He had revealed in 1976 before his presidential campaign that he was a born again evangelical Christian. A peacemaker, mediator in certain conflicts, his career was crowned in 2002 by the Nobel Peace Prize. Very involved in its foundation, the Carter Center since 1982, he works there to promote the peaceful settlement of conflicts, the observation of elections, the defense of Human Rights, the protection of the environment and development aid. .

In his family, his sister and his father had suffered from pancreatic cancer… Did he himself feel condemned by liver cancer?

In fact Jimmy Carter announced Sunday in full worship in his church, that he had overcome his disease:

“We trusted God:
On the scanner, no more cancer! "
