When doctors found tumors in former president Jimmy Carter's brain a few months ago, he said he would cut back on work. Now, after starting treatments in August, he admits that he hasn't cut anything from his schedule at The Carter Center. Cater said he tries to become a regular worker at Habitat sites. He recently joined volunteers who were building a home in Memphis. He said that he enjoys detail work, such as installing trimming around doors and windows.
'Back in August ... I didn't know if I would be physically able or if the doctors would let me go to Nepal, but they finally approved my going, and I was very happy and excited about that,' Carter said. 'To find out that we couldn't go because of civil disorder in Nepal was just a very serious blow to me and I presume to the other 2,500 people who were going to join us down there.'
