The Kingman family was away from Loge13 the long weekend. The news on Gary Carter is not good. Tonight doctors confirmed that Carter has glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer.

We are all rooting for the Kid to beat this bad news.

Here is the official release:

This evening, doctors at Duke University Hospital confirmed former Met Gary Carter has glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer which affects the central nervous system, and have released the following statement:

"The results of biopsies performed on the 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."

The Carter family also issued the following statement about the diagnosis:

"While we are saddened by the news we received today, we take comfort in the overwhelming support and prayers that have been extended to our family during this difficult time. We have boundless faith and hope knowing that the Lord will help see us through the challenging weeks and months ahead. Gary is getting the best care possible and is blessed with an incredible support network including family, friends and loyal fans. Gary was always a fierce competitor on the baseball field and that same tenacity will help him not only fight but win this battle, so please join Team Carter and continue to pray with our family."
