Former Buffalo Bills Quarterback Jim Kelly returned to his home in Buffalo on Wednesday. Doctors operated on Kelly for 12 hours last month after his third oral cancer diagnosis. Doctors removed Kelly's cancer from his upper jaw and lymph nodes from his neck. "We then reconstructed his upper jaw. Mr. Kelly is resting comfortably post-operatively," said Dr. Mark Urken of Mt. Sinai West.
Statement from Jim Kelly:
"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."
