When it comes to building homes for charity, former President Jimmy Carter knows what he's doing. And he's back at it again. This time in Memphis, Tennessee. Carter donned a hard hat and work gloves to build a home for Habitat for Humanity, a charity he's been involved in since 1984. The former president who continues to undergo treatment for cancer that spread to his brain, says he still feels good and hasn't had any adverse reaction to the treatments. Doctors removed a portion of Carter's liver in August. Shortly after that, the 91-year-old revealed the cancer had spread to his brain. Carter says he hopes to keep raising the roof for charity for as long as his health allows.
