Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is planning to spend this weekend celebrating Easter at home in suburban Buffalo with his family, before returning to New York City to resume treatments for sinus cancer.
 
Barring any setbacks, Kelly's brother said the former Bills star will travel home Friday before returning on Sunday to resume treatments.
 
"He's doing pretty good," Dan Kelly told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "We anticipate Jim coming home for this weekend. He's put together a couple of good days in a row."
 
Dan Kelly said his brother had a rough stretch last week following his first chemotherapy session on April 8. He said the treatments are particularly painful because they're targeting cancer cells attached to nerves in Kelly's maxillary sinus and adjacent tissues.
 
Kelly is scheduled to have two more chemotherapy sessions and is also having radiation treatment five days a week.
 
He has spent the past three weeks being treated at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.
 
Kelly initially underwent surgery in Buffalo last June to remove cancerous cells from his upper jaw. A follow-up test in March revealed that the cancer had returned.
