Jim Kelly Undergoing Follow-Up Surgery
Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Kelly is back in New York City for follow-up surgery in his continuing battle against oral cancer. Kelly himself says if all goes well he'll be back home in Western New York by the weekend.
Kelly's latest surgery was pre-planned after the more than 12-hour procedure he underwent in March. After several weeks of recuperation he was discharged from the hospital on April 14th.
At his annual celebrity golf tournament on June 4th Kelly revealed he would need follow-up surgery, but said he fully planned to be on hand for his Jim Kelly Football Camp June 24th thru 28th.
His wife Jill Kelly posted this on her Instagram site -
Back in the Big Apple for more surgery today. Another step forward in the healing process. If all goes well, we will be back home by the weekend. Other than God’s Grace and a whole lot of praying... I don’t know how he does it. Like Hunter’s life, Jim’s struggles are a constant reminder that this life is not the end of the story. God’s plans are eternal. And He’s just getting started. We have so much to look forward to! There is immeasurably more waiting... P.S. Thank you for praying! Wish I could hug you and thank you in person.
