FORMER MET ED HEARN TO BE HONORED BEFORE TONIGHTS METS-PHILLIES GAME

Former Mets catcher Ed Hearn, a member of the 1986 World Championship Mets, will be honored this evening before the Mets-Phillies game at Citi Field for his work as an ambassador for kidney disease with the Neph Cure Foundation. Check out Hern’s story:

Ed Hearn, a member of the 1986 World Champion New York Mets, will

          be honored at Citi Field on Friday, Sept. 10, for his work as Ambassador for The

           NephCure Foundation. Hearn has undergone three kidney transplants in a

           continuing battle with the kidney disease FSGS, for which there is no effective

           treatment and no cure. Hearn, who backed up Gary Carter as catcher on that

            memorable team, and was later traded to the Kansas City Royals in the David

            Cone deal, has endured dramatic health complications since retiring from

            baseball in 1991.  He is now an Ambassador for the NephCure Foundation and a

            motivational speaker who travels across the country to hospitals and dialysis

            centers to bring hope to patients facing similar challenges. Hearn is an admitted

            steroid user – but not as a player. Steroids were part of his treatment for the

            kidney malfunction caused by FSGS, which attacked his new kidneys after each

            transplant. He will be recognized Friday as part of Ed Hearn/NephCure

            Foundation Night at Citi Field, before the Mets-Phillies game, a 7:05 start
