Earlier this month, Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly was diagnosed with cancer for the second time in eight months. The legendary Bills quarterback's first battle with jaw cancer ended a couple weeks after surgery in June 2013, but his wife, Jill Kelly, wrote on her personal blog late last week that "the cancer's back, aggressive, and starting to spread."

On her Instagram page, Jill also said her husband is tentatively scheduled for surgery Thursday.

During the weekend, it was clear that Kelly was surrounded by his family, including his daughter, Erin.

This was her Instagram photo.

The Bills have also shown their support, dropping this message on Twitter earlier in the month.
