Former Phillies catcher Darren Daulton has been diagnosed with a form of brain cancer and will seek treatment in Florida, according to a post made by 97.5 The Fanatic on behalf of the board of the Darren Daulton Foundation.
The post reads:
On behalf of the Board of the Darren Daulton Foundation, and on behalf of Darren and his family, the following is an update on Darren’s condition and the September 9th golf outing at LuLu Country Club.
Darren has been diagnosed with a Glioblastoma (“GBM”), a form of brain cancer. He has returned to his Clearwater area home to continue recuperating amongst his immediate family and friends. He will eventually begin treatments in Florida. Darren and his family wish to thank everyone for their loving support throughout this difficult time. He is deeply touched. In typical fashion, he again said, “Right on; Fight on.” Darren and his family request that everyone respect his privacy and that of his family during this period of time. At his urging, I can report that the September 9, 2013 golf tournament that benefits the Foundation will continue as planned.
More details are forthcoming as Darren has requested that we keep his friends and fans periodically updated.
