Transcript

  • 1.  Jim Kelly’s longtime friend and fellow Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino recently talked with the Buffalo News about Kelly, who is fighting recurring jaw cancer and has completed radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Kelly has been receiving treatment in Buffalo, New York, where he lives with his wife, Jill.
  • 2.  Marino visited Kelly in the hospital in Buffalo and described his friend as a “tough guy.” The former NFL players grew up in Pittsburgh and both were first- round NFL draft picks in 1983. “It’s hard to even understand what he’s going through,” Marino told the Buffalo News. “He’s in the fight for his life. He’ll win.”
  • 3.  Kelly, who played for the Buffalo Bills, lost weight and shaved his head during treatment. Marino said that people are used to seeing Kelly as a strong man, but he is hopeful that his friend will recover. Jim and Jill Kelly are the founders of Hunter’s Hope, a foundation dedicated to research and support related to Krabbe disease, a fatal condition that affects the nervous system.
