Long time Buffalo Bills QB and HOF has cancer


Long time Buffalo Bills QB and Hall of Famer, has announced that he has been diagnosed with cancer.  Jim Kelly came out with a statement about this…

“This past couple of weeks has been difficult for me and because of the nature of social media I thought it would be best to share with everyone what has been going on with my health,” Kelly said. “I was recently diagnosed with Squamous-cell carcinoma (cancer) of the upper jaw bone. I have undergone tests which have shown that the cancer is isolated to my upper jaw and has not spread to other parts of my body. Surgery is scheduled for June 7th and doctors have told me that the prognosis for my recovery is very good. With the excellent medical care that I will be receiving and the loving care of my wife Jill and my daughters Erin and Camryn and the support of my entire family and friends, I am extremely confident in my road to recovery.”

Jim Kelly is still a presence in the Buffalo community and with the Buffalo Bills.  He played for the Bills from 1986-1996 and has set most of the passing records for the Buffalo Bills. Kelly is one of  the major players that are currently trying to get a deal done to buy the Buffalo Bills and keep them local.
