Jim Kelly has gone through many battles throughout both his playing career and life to earn the respect and adoration from many around the country. Upon finding out that Kelly's cancer had returned, the support and prayers spilled out for both he and his family in the extremely trying time.
After an enduring stretch of both radiation and chemotherapy treatments, the initial tests for the former Buffalo Bills quarterback and Hall of Famer have come back with the results everyone had been hoping for.
In a statement from Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, it was revealed that in the three months after the conclusion of the treatments that Kelly, his family and Bills fans everywhere had something to cheer about.
"The treatments so far have completely eliminated Mr. Kelly's pain, and his level of function has essentially returned to normal," said Dr. Peter Costantino. "Further, on physical examination, there is no evidence of cancer."
The former Bills quarterback will now undergo some additional testing over the course of the next week.
"It is possible that no further treatment will be required, and the testing over the next week will define the issue."
