The 95-year-old fell again earlier this month and despite receiving 14 stitches, travelled the next day to Nashville, Tennessee, to rally volunteers and help build a Habitat for Humanity home.

After a fall and a fracture, former President Jimmy Carter is home and recovering.

Carter, a former peanut farmer and Georgia governor, was the nation's 39th president and served one term from 1977 to 1981.

Carter also had a bad fall earlier this year, breaking his hip in May as he prepared to go turkey hunting.

Carter was admitted Phoebe Sumter Medical Center, according to a news release from the Carter Center.

He and his wife, Rosalynn, founded the Carter Center in 1982 to carry on their worldwide and humanitarian work.

SAP's Bill McDermott named new ServiceNow CEO
Parker denied that his departure had anything to do with the various scandals plaguing the company under his leadership. Donahoe, who has led ServiceNow for a little over two years, is handing the CEO reins to new recruit Bill McDermott.

The Carter Center, a non-profit organization founded in 1980 by Carter and his wife in partnership with Emory University, says it works to improve lives by resolving conflicts, advancing democracy and preventing diseases.

None of that stopped Carter from his longstanding commitments to Habitat for Humanity.

Carter just keeps getting back up when he's knocked down, and he has no plans to stop anytime soon.

Carter and his 92-year-old wife, Rosalynn, are the longest married former US first couple, with more than 73 years of marriage.

Within months, the cancer was gone following successful surgery and innovative immunotherapeutic treatments.
