INDIANAPOLIS — Former IndyCar driver John Andretti announced his cancer has returned and he is starting chemotherapy Friday night on Twitter.
Andretti, who was diagnosed with cancer and had part of his colon removed in 2017, started the "CheckItForAndretti" campaign to encourage others to get a colonoscopy.
Today was not what we hoped would happen but I started back on the #chemocoaster w/o a definite end. Unfortunately, the cancer has returned again. We continue to research options that may be more beneficial. All of the love & support means a lot. #CheckIt4Andretti #silentkiller
