Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter has experienced a setback in his treatment for brain cancer, with his daughter writing in the family’s online journal that doctors discovered “an abnormal and unusual spot” on his right temple and scheduled him for a biopsy.

Here are the details provided by Kimmy Bloemers, via Adam Rubin of ESPN New York:

When I saw the look on my dad’s face, I just wanted to cry. This journey has been so emotional when there has been just one thing after the next that dad has to conquer. Dad did not complain; he just had look of sadness. I really hate that dad has to go through such a tough road. Dad got the biopsy and actually had several spots removed in various places. We hope to find out the results soon.

Once piece of positive news is that Carter’s white blood cell count has risen enough for him to receive a higher dosage of chemotherapy, which had been delayed.

To show support for Carter you can purchase “Team Carter” merchandise from, which donates money to various charities on behalf of the Gary Carter Foundation.

    Why is Carter posing next to a bust of a burn victim?

      Ohh! 5 thumbs down. Look, I’m not the one who tried to honor the guy by giving him the worst f**king likeness of a person I’ve ever seen. And what’s going on with the right eye on that thing?

      Really, it’s truly awful.
