Nov 28, 2018

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is back at a New York City hospital for another surgery. Kelly has had two bouts with squamous cell carcinoma.

In September, Kelly had surgery on his upper jaw.  Last March, he underwent removal of the cancer in his jaw and reconstruction surgery.  

The former Buffalo Bill quarterback is now back for another round. But his wife, Jill Kelly posted a photo on Instagram. She stated that doctors are telling them “it should be Jim’s last surgery”.

Thumbs up...
For hand holding,
Lavender hospital gowns,
Blue hair nets...
And the doctors telling us that this should be Jim’s last surgery.
Thank you for praying us through.
Your love, encouragement, and prayer support have blessed us beyond measure.
While I wait for Jim, I’ll be praying.
If you would like me to pray for you, please let me know.
It’s an honor to do so.
