Sad news regarding Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter, who was diagnosed with brain tumors last May. From the New York Daily News:
On Thursday, Carter's family received a phone call from the doctors at Duke University who have been treating the Mets Hall of Fame catcher informing them that the most recent MRI revealed "several new spots/tumors on his brain," Carter's daughter, Kimmy Bloomers, wrote on the family website.
The 57-year-old Carter was diagnosed with brain tumors after complaining about dizzy spells and memory loss, and according to the Daily News, Carter doesn't feel that his treatment has helped at all.
"I'm not feeling too good," he told The News. "It's been coming on and coming on. I've had a chest cold. I've got sores in my mouth, blood clots. I get sick ... there's just so many things ... It's been nine months now and I don't feel any different from Day One. I haven't been up to doing any interviews."
Carter played 19 seasons in baseball for the Expos, Mets, Giants, and Dodgers. The 11-time All Star was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003.
