Carter, who suffers from Crohn's disease, last year recovered from testicular cancer to resume his career.
Overwhelming amount of messages of good wishes and support. Too many to thank personally but thank you all so much for all your kind words.
My big match starts tomorrow: Me v Cancer. Going to be a long one but get your money on - I'm up for this one! Biggest match if my life!
