It has been a year since former President Jimmy Carter entered hospice care, facing various health challenges. But, in the face of adversity, his spirit remains unwavering, according to his grandson.

Despite battling brain cancer, liver cancer, a broken hip, and undergoing brain surgery, Carter’s grandson recently provided an update on his condition. In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, he stated, “After a year in hospice, on a daily basis, we have no expectations for his body. But we know that his spirit is as strong as ever.”

The Carter family is thankful for the support they have received over the past year. They expressed their gratitude and mentioned that President Carter continues to be at home with his loved ones. They also appreciated the discussions that Carter’s decision to enter hospice care has sparked.

It is remarkable that Carter is among the six percent of individuals who have lived more than a year after entering hospice care. His wife Rosalynn’s passing in November deeply affected him, as they shared a strong bond during their 77-year marriage.

Dr. Michael Raines, Carter’s doctor, expressed concern following Rosalynn’s death, acknowledging the significant loss that Carter experienced. He recognized the deep dependency between long-married couples and the impact of such a loss.

As we reflect on Jimmy Carter’s journey, let us extend our wishes for peace and offer our prayers for his well-being in the days ahead. If you wish to join us in praying for him, please feel free to leave a comment.
