Jim Kelly has cancer, prognosis for recovery is good
Posted by Michael David Smith on June 3, 2013, 9:07 AM EDT

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly has revealed that he has cancer.

Kelly, who played for the Bills from 1986 to 1996, said in a statement released by the team that he expects to make a full recovery.

“This past couple of weeks has been difficult for me and because of the nature of social media I thought it would be best to share with everyone what has been going on with my health,” Kelly said. “I was recently diagnosed with Squamous-cell carcinoma (cancer) of the upper jaw bone. I have undergone tests which have shown that the cancer is isolated to my upper jaw and has not spread to other parts of my body. Surgery is scheduled for June 7th and doctors have told me that the prognosis for my recovery is very good. With the excellent medical care that I will be receiving and the loving care of my wife Jill and my daughters Erin and Camryn and the support of my entire family and friends, I am extremely confident in my road to recovery.”

We credit Kelly for helping to raise awareness by addressing his health matter publicly, and we wish him well in his recovery.

You know, during the glory days, the Bills held their training camp in my hometown. I wasn't a Bills fan and that team wasn't endearing to me at all. You'd bump into the players out and about in the college bars, particularly a place called Coughlan's, for whom I played beer league hockey during that era. A lot of them were, unsurprisingly, arrogant pricks and Kelly was no exception. Everyone had a story about him womanizing or being too cool for everyone else. But I'll tell you, in the years since that time I've really changed my stance on him. He's gone through hell in his private life and has put a brave face on it the entire time. He's also stuck it out in Buffalo and contributed to the community in ways that most athlete's haven't. This latest news isn't good, but I'm praying for his recovery.

Honestly when I hear the name "Jim Kelly", I think about the Missy Hyatt story before I even think about the 4 SB losses.
