(WTXF) - The Phillies have confirmed longtime catcher Darren Daulton is struggling in his battle with brain cancer.
Friends and former teammates have taken to social media to ask for prayers for the 55-year-old, who has been battling the disease for four years.
Please send out thoughts and prayers to my former teammate and dear friend @DarrenDaulton10 .— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) July 26, 2017
In 2013, he was diagnosed with glioblastoma, which is the same cancer Sen. John McCain is fighting right now.
His nonprofit Darren Daulton Foundation helps pay people affected by brain tumors and cancer.
