Loved by millions for his humble personality, Jimmy Carter, who served as the 39th President of the United States of America never took any advantage of post-presidential popularity.
Besides the position he once held, Carter, as well as his wife of many years, Rosalynn, lead a very normal and modest life, and it has always been like that.
They both have been part of the Habitat for Humanity for many years and helped renovate around 4,300 houses in 14 different countries. In February, his foundation, The Carter Center, released a statement that left many devastated. After a few hospital visits, former President Carter has been admitted to hospice.
“After a series of short hospital stays, former US President Jimmy Carter today decided to spend his remaining time at home with his family and receive hospice care instead of additional medical intervention. He has the full support of his family and his medical team.”
Over the years, he has dealt with several serious health issues, including brain cancer. In 2019, he underwent brain surgery to remove mounting pressure.
Now his grandson, Hugo Wentzel, who was recently eliminated from the ABC reality show Claim to Fame, provided a health update on his grandparents. “He always wants to be doing something with his mind, so he’s trying to keep himself busy, but he is really sick and getting older,” Wentzel told EW, speaking of his grandpa.
