Default Re: HOF QB Jim Kelly's cancer returns

More surgery is cancelled for Jim Kelly

Jill Kelly, the wife of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, wrote earlier this week that her husband would undergo surgery on Thursday because the cancer he fought off last year was "back, aggressive and starting to spread."

On Wednesday, though, she wrote that the surgery has been canceled because "the cancer is in areas that surgery cannot successfully eradicate."

"Because of complexity and aggressive nature of this cancer and after more scans and tests, the plan has changed," Jill Kelly wrote on her Facebook page. "At this point, Jim will not be having surgery ... Therefore, the medical specialists here in NYC along with our Buffalo team believe that chemotherapy and radiation are the best option."

Sad news - sounds like Jim Kelly and his family are having the "treatable but not curable" conversation with the oncologist
