Former Buffalo Bill Quarterback Jim Kelly Battling Cancer Again

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly was diagnosed this week with a recurrence of upper jaw cancer.  According to reports from Buffalo media outlets, Jim will travel to New York City to meet with a specialist on Monday.

Kelly’s surgeon, Dr. Thom Loree, at Erie County Medical Center released this statement late Friday afternoon:

“Jim Kelly came to ECMC this week for continued testing related to his oral surgery. Unfortunately, it has been determined that his cancer has returned. Our team of head and neck cancer specialists is determining a course of treatment that will allow Mr. Kelly to battle this cancer successfully. Mr. Kelly has asked that you to keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers”

He faced an uphill battle on the field to bring the Buffalo Bills to the Superbowl.  He faced an impossible battle when his son Hunter was born with a rare genetic defect that would ultimately claim his life.  Jim will face this challenge with that same courage and determination.
