Fam­ily gives mes­sage on be­half of Michael An­dretti’s can­cer fight

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

INDIANAPOLIS - Michael An­dretti is tak­ing his cousin’s mes­sage pub­lic.

The for­mer IndyCar star and cur­rent team owner is urg­ing peo­ple to get reg­u­lar screen­ings for early de­tec­tion of colon can­cer. An­dretti made the plea on be­half of his cousin, John, a for­mer race­car driver who is cur­rently un­der­go­ing chemo­ther­apy after doc­tors di­ag­nosed him in Jan­uary.

Doc­tors have told John An­dretti that the dis­ease also has spread to his liver. John’s 24-year-old, Jar­rett, also was in Indianapolis on Thurs­day. He says his 54-year-old fa­ther is fight­ing hard and has been up­beat through­out the process.
