We are happy to announce that Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly received encouraging news in his battle with cancer this week.
An initial physical exam showed no evidence of sinus cancer three months after the former Buffalo Bills quarterback completed radiation and chemotherapy treatments.
According to doctors’, the treatments have so far completely eliminated Kelly’s pain, and his level of function has essentially returned to normal.
Kelly had surgery in June 2013 to remove cancerous cells in his upper jaw. The cancer then spread to his sinus in March.
Kelly will have to undergo further follow-up tests that will include biopsies to confirm the cancer has been eradicated. But at this time it’s possible that no further treatment will be required. #KellyTough (Photo: Kirby Lee/USA TODAY Sports)
