    Former President Jimmy Carter announced Sunday that his brain cancer is gone, NBC News reported.

    Carter, 91, said an MRI earlier this week revealed the good news, which he broke to a Sunday school class he teaches in his home state of Georgia, according to NBC News.

    The former president revealed in August he wound undergo radiation for melanoma spots on his brain and liver after a mass removed from his liver turned out to be cancerous.

    The 39th president said last month he was feeling well and the cancer had not spread.
