Boy's football injury leads to shocking diagnosis

by WGAL - Lancaster/Harrisburg 2:35 mins

Carter N. Bowman Foundation (http://carternbowman.org/) was 13 when he suffered a hard hit playing football. A brain scan to check for a concussion led to a shocking diagnosis: Carter had stage 3 brain cancer. Two years later, after three brain surgeries and radiation treatments, he is in remission, and his using his good health to spread a message to young kids: "There's nothing better you can do for someone than be there for them." After surviving his frightening health scare, he says he felt "obligated" to "give back" with a positive message. Proud father Matt says that through the ordeal, Carter was the "calming influence" for his frightened family. No longer able to play football, Carter is now an assistant coach for the middle school football team. He is also raising money for other ailing kids through his Web site, http://carternbowman.org/.
