Jim and Jill Kelly, along with their children, were recognized at Roswell Park Cancer Institute's All Star Night.

Kelly, a former Buffalo Bill and Hall of Fame Quarterback, was diagnosed with oral cancer in 2013. He and his family have shared their battle with the disease through national media and a campaign called "Kelly Tough."

The black-tie gala event raised more than a half-million dollars for Roswell Park.
