Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is undergoing treatment for the recurrence of sinus cancer, and in a recent Facebook video, he talked about his situation.
“Hello everyone," Kelly began. "I’m just getting ready to go to my 19th treatment for radiation and I’ve already had two bouts of chemo. Keep those prayers coming, I sure need them. Without you I wouldn’t be able to get through this. God bless you. Look forward to the Bills’ draft on May 8th.”
Jill Kelly, Jim's wife, wrote on Facebook that, "It was a stretch for Jim to do this ... but he wanted to thank everyone. He's halfway there! Thank you so much for praying!"
Kelly returned to Buffalo several weeks ago to continue treatment.

"He's had a rough few days, but he decided to come home anyway because this is an emotional battle, too," Dan Kelly, Jim's brother, told the Buffalo News at the time.
The Associated Press reported in April that Kelly has interest in being a part of the bidding during the impending sale of the Bills' franchise. Kelly, who took the Bills to four Super Bowls, wants to make sure the team remains in Buffalo.
