Diagnosis: The Kid Has Cancer

It has been confirmed that the results of Gary Carter's biopsy are positive for glioblastoma; in other words, brain cancer.

In a statement by doctor's Allan and Henry Friedman:

The results of biopsies performed on hte tumor in Gary Carter's brain have conclusively shown that Mr. Carter has a glioblastoma. While surgery is not a good option given the location of the tumor, we discussed an aggressive treatment plan with Mr. Carter and his family, which will include chemotherapy and radiation. Mr. Carter will be returning home to Florida to begin the next phase of his treatment, but we will continue to work closely with his medical team. Mr. Carter's youth, strong physical condition and fighting spirit will be to his advantage as his treatment commences. The outpouring of support for Mr. Carter has been incredible and we trust that his many friends and fans will join us in continuing to pray for him and his family.

As with any tragedy, especially to those of the Mets family, we here at 24 Hours From Suicide...A Day In The Life Of A Met Fan send our well wishes and prayers to Gary, Sandy and their children.
