Hall of Fame quarterback and Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly released a personal statement Thursday, announcing the oral cancer he was first diagnosed with in 2013 has returned.
As our family has faced many trials and triumphs throughout the years, you have blessed us with your prayers. We are asking for those prayers once again. The oral cancer we hoped would be gone forever has returned. Although I was shocked and deeply saddened to receive this news, I know that God is with me. I continuously talk about the four F’s. Faith, Family, Friends and Fans. With all of you by my side, we will fight and win this battle together. Staying “Kelly Tough” and trusting God, will carry us through this difficult time.
Kelly was originally diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in his jaw in 2013, which ultimately led to surgery. The 58-year-old then learned his cancer had returned in March 2014 and subsequently underwent radiation and chemotherapy, with his final rounds concluding a couple of months later.
