NEW YORK (WIVB) – Though he had hoped to return home for Easter, Jim Kelly will be spending the holiday in New York City.
His wife, Jill Kelly, tweeted on Thursday, “Looks like we’ll be celebrating Easter in NYC.”
The day before, in an interview with the Associated Press, Dan Kelly, brother of the Buffalo Bills legend, said, “We anticipate Jim coming home for this weekend. He’s put together a couple of good days in a row.”
The Hall of Fame quarterback was said to have had a few bad days the week before after his first chemotherapy session, which is particularly painful because it targets cancer cells attached to Kelly’s nerves in his maxillary sinus and adjacent tissues.
Kelly is also undergoing radiation treatment five days a week and will have two more chemotherapy sessions at Lennox Hill Hospital in NYC.
