Jimmy Carter has revealed he's not entirely cancer-free even though his body is responding well to treatments.
"They haven't detected any cancer, but sometimes the cancer spots [return], including in my brain," the former US president opened up about the struggle he still faces with Entertainment Tonight's Brooke Anderson during the Painting, Paula [Deen] and a President fundraiser this weekend.
"I'll continue that until the doctors tell me I don't have to anymore," said the 91-year retired politician, adding, "My immune system seems to be responding positively."

Carter has been a huge inspiration for others battling cancer but says he's received inspiration from his wife, Rosalynn Carter.
"Her support has helped me the last 69 years that we've been married, in everything I've tried," Carter shared. "Of course when I was ill, they thought I might die any time, and she was there for me. She grieved with me and was excited with me when I found out that my metabolism responded well to the treatment."
As we earlier reported, Carter revealed that his brain cancer was gone in December and that an MRI showed no signs of cancer at all. It seems that the announcement may have been premature, but the former president shows no signs of backing down in his battle against the illness.
