CHICAGO, Ill -- Chicago's Francis Cardinal George will undergo chemotherapy again, according to the Chicago Archdiocese.

The 77 year-old Cardinal's fight against cancer started eight years ago. In 2006, Cardinal George was diagnosed with bladder cancer. In 2012, the cancer returned, this time in his kidney and liver, forcing him to undergo six rounds of chemotherapy.

Now, the Cardinal says the cancer is confined to his right kidney, and he expects to undergo chemo for two months.
