Jim Kelly’s Cancer 2018 Update Ahead of His ESPYs Honor

Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly is honored at the 2018 ESPYs with the Jimmy V. Perseverance Award for his cancer fight, according to ABC 13. Kelly was diagnosed with oral cancer in 2013 and was later declared cancer-free in 2014. Unfortunately, in March 2018, he, again, found out that he would be battling the disease.

And so, he had surgery to remove the cancer and needed to get his jaw reconstructed. According to ABC, he currently has a mouthful of stitches and cannot eat solid foods until the fall of 2018.
