Andretti tweet: Cancer returns again

Race driver John Andretti said Friday night that his cancer has returned and he is returning to chemotherapy

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Race driver John Andretti shared some sobering news Friday night.

His cancer has returned and he is going back on chemotherapy treatments.

In a tweet, Andretti said the treatments had no "definite end."

He went on to say, "All of the love & support means a lot."

During a routine check up back in January 2017, doctors told Andretti he had Stage 3 colon cancer.

Since then, Andretti has become an advocate of colonoscopy screenings. Andretti has helped to spread the word with his hashtag #CheckIt4Andretti.
