Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is back in New York City Thursday for a follow-up surgery.
Kelly underwent a 12-hour surgery in March at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City to have cancer removed from his jaw after tests revealed a recurrence.
The 58-year-old was initially diagnosed five years ago with skin cancer and had been cancer free since September 2014.
Jill Kelly wrote in an Instagram post Thursday that her husband's procedure is "another step forward in the healing process" and they plan to return to Buffalo by the weekend.
Back in the Big Apple for more surgery today. Another step forward in the healing process. If all goes well, we will be back home by the weekend. Other than God’s Grace and a whole lot of praying... I don’t know how he does it. Like Hunter’s life, Jim’s struggles are a constant reminder that this life is not the end of the story. God’s plans are eternal. And He’s just getting started. We have so much to look forward to! There is immeasurably more waiting... P.S. Thank you for praying! Wish I could hug you and thank you in person.
