BUFFALO, N.Y. (FOX 35 WOFL) - Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is officially cancer free after a recent MRI came back clean.
His wife, Jill Kelly, announced on Instagram on Friday that his MRI was clean. She elaborated that Jim's recovery took a little longer than usual because of all the reconstruction Jim has had inside his mouth.
According to the Associated Press, Jim had cancer in his upper jaw and lymph nodes. His upper jaw had to be reconstructed in March 2018 and a portion of his jaw was also removed in 2013 when he was first diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma.

We finally got back the results from Jim’s recent MRI...CLEAN! Thank GOD! It took a bit longer than usual because of all the reconstruction Jim has had inside his mouth. They wanted to be certain that all was good... This extra waiting has been a reminder for me. A reminder to remember the WHO and not the what. The bigger picture and not the present outcome. Although God is in all of it, I needed to be reminded (yet again) that this is not the end of the story. It’s a page. A chapter. It’s part of the greater story. Hope this reminds you that THIS (whatever your “this” is) is NOT the end of the story. Immeasurably more is always in store for those who hope in the Lord! AMEN!
