Re: HOF QB Jim Kelly's cancer returns

"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
All generalizations are dangerous.
