Jim Kelly has attacked his battle with jaw cancer in the same way he attacked opponents during his Hall of Fame career: with a fearless determination.
The former Buffalo Bills great has been open with his struggles and his courage has been an inspiration to those facing similar health challenges.
Kelly and his family were the recipients of some tremendous news yesterday. He was declared cancer-free after biopsies taken last week came back negative.
Kelly’s wife captured the moment her husband called their daughter to share the joy.
Oh yeah. Someone is definitely getting a jump on cutting onions in here this morning.
“This is some of the greatest news I’ve ever gotten,” Kelly said in a statement. “It’s been a long road, and I’m still not back to 100 percent, but I have a lot to be thankful for.”
