Darren Daulton passes along good news in battle against brain cancer
Former Phillies catcher Darren Daulton passed along good news on Thursday as he battles a "highly malignant" form of brain cancer.
Two years ago, long-time Phillies catcher Darren Daulton was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer the American Brain Tumor Association characterizes as being "highly malignant." He had successful surgery to remove a pair of brain tumors in July 2013.
Daulton, now 53, has undergone extensive chemotherapy and radiation treatment in the 19 months since the surgery. On Thursday he passed along some good news:
I'm incredibly blessed to have a clean scan. Thank u to all of u for the continued support. I'm doing well and feeling great #RightOnFightOn— Darren Daulton (@DarrenDaulton10) February 19, 2015
It goes without saying this is outstanding news. Daulton's fight is not over, he is battling a severe form of brain cancer, but right now things are looking good. Let's hope this continues.
Daulton spent parts of 14 seasons with the Phillies and retired following the 1997 campaign. He finished that season with the Marlins, with whom he won his only World Series ring.
