NY Post, Mets great Gary Carter is improving as he heads into the final portion of his first round of cancer treatments.
His daughter Kimmy Bloemers wrote on a family website Monday, "Mom and dad were told by the doctor that dad looks wonderful and is happy to see how well he is doing."
Carter, who has brain cancer, was unable to attend All-Star Game festivities last week and will not be in Cooperstown for next weekend's Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The 1986 world champion was able to walk two miles Monday, according to Bloemers, and plans to return as head baseball coach at Palm Beach Atlantic University next season.
Carter will finish radiation treatments Tuesday. A scheduled MRI exam was moved up to Aug. 1.
"We know dad still has a battle and a road ahead of him to fight; however, we believe in miracles," Bloemers wrote, according to ESPN.com.
