It wasn't that long ago that the prognosis for Jim Kelly wasn't very good, and those around him were praying for intervention. Whatever they did - doctors, praying fans, the Kelly family themselves - it worked, and Kelly is still cancer-free 18 months later according to his wife, Jill.
First diagnosed in June of 2013, Kelly's cancer came back in March of 2014. Doctors didn't perform chemotherapy after his initial surgery in 2013 specifically in case of a recurrence. When that happened, Kelly lost a considerable amount of weight and hair, but kept his fighting spirit alive with the slogan #KellyTough. It's good to keep seeing these positive updates regarding the Buffalo Bills great.
No cancer. Thank you LORD! Thank you to everyone who has prayed and continues to pray for Jim and our family. The last few scans didn't look so good so that necessitated biopsies this morning, and some minor oral surgery. But...no cancer. Can't help but be overwhelmed sitting in the post-op room. Holding Jim's hand. Listening to the pain all around me. And so I pray...because I know that some will not receive good news today. When I don't understand, I choose TRUST. One day at a time. One prayer at a time.
