HOF Quarterback Jim Kelly’s Cancer Returns, Aggressively Spreading
March 25, 2014
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh native and Hall of Fame Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly’s cancer has reportedly returned, and is aggressively spreading.
Earlier this month Kelly was diagnosed with cancer for the second time in eight months.
His wife Jill Kelly wrote on a personal blog last week that, “the cancer is back, aggressive, and starting to spread.”
On her Instagram page, Jill also said that her husband is tentatively scheduled for surgery on Thursday.
Over the weekend, Kelly’s daughter Erin, posted a photo to her Instagram account showing her in a hospital bed with her dad watching a Syracuse basketball game.
Kelly, a former player at East Brady High School passed for 3,915 yards and 44 touchdowns during his high school career, which gave him all-state honors.
He played for the Buffalo Bills from 1986 to 1996 where he was a five-time Pro Bowler and made First-Team All-Pro in 1991.
The Bills’ all-time leader in passing touchdowns and completions would also make it to the Super Bowl four consecutive times, but did not win a title.
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, Jim. May God hold you in His healing hands.
