NY Post, Gary Carter's battle with brain cancer took a positive turn yesterday, when doctors determined that new spots recently discovered were benign, according to the former Mets catcher's daughter, Kimmy Bloemers.
"We are praising the heavens for more victories!" Bloemers wrote in her online journal. "Thank you all for the prayers and encouraging cheers for dad! Keep them coming!!!"
Bloemers also said the Hall of Famer was due to finish his second round of chemotherapy last night.
"Dad has been extremely tired during these days of chemo, which has been expected," Bloemers wrote. "After he finishes his last pill tonight, he will start to do more activity for his body. The doctor has emphasized exercise, healthy food intake and rest when needed. Dad will start to do physical therapy to get his joints and muscles moving as he pushes through the exhaustion."
