By David Beasley ATLANTA (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said on Thursday that his cancer has spread to his brain and he will start radiation treatment for it later in the day, adding that his fate was "in the hands of God." Carter, 90, held a news conference on his condition barely a week after announcing he had undergone surgery for liver cancer. Carter served as president from 1977 to 1981 and became active in humanitarian causes and monitoring elections after leaving office. Asked on Thursday if he had any regrets, Carter said he wished he had sent one more helicopter in the failed attempt to rescue the Iran hostages, adding that he would have been re-elected had the effort succeeded.
