I don’t usually post celebrity news here. But I’ve been a bit overwhelmed lately, deciding to suspend content on our CancerNews.US site for now. So I’m going to post some of the content here that I would have run there.
Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly’s cancer returns
March 14, 2014
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) – Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly’s cancer has returned.
The Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo said Friday that cancer was found when the former Buffalo Bills star came in for follow-up testing after having oral surgery to remove cancerous cells last year.
The statement says the hospital’s head and neck cancer specialists are determining a course of treatment.
Kelly spent 11 seasons with the Bills before retiring following the 1996 season. He has since made Buffalo his home.
His son, Hunter, was born with Krabbe disease, an inherited nervous system disorder. Given little more than three years to live, Hunter died at the age of 8 in 2005.
The hospital statement says Kelly asks that people keep him and his family in their thoughts and prayers.
I’m sure you will all join me in wishing Jim enjoys a speedy recovery.
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat and Pattie
