Gary Carter is resting comfortably at home, preparing for a cancer treatment that calls for 6 weeks of radiation and one year of chemotherapy, his daughter wrote on a private family website Thursday.

Carter's daughter, Kimmy Bloemers, wrote in a journal entry that his treatment will likely begin Monday.

"Doctor said they are going after these tumors aggressively. ... Dad is ready to battle," Bloemers wrote.
