BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) – Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is in the midst of battling a recurrence of oral caner. His nephew, Chad Kelly, spoke to News 4 Sports’ Lauren Brill on Monday and said his uncle was feeling better.
“He is doing a lot better. Definitely a lot better than he was doing before, with all the stuff he was throwing up and headaches and all that other stuff,” said Chad. “So I think he is definitely getting through it right now.”
The Buffalo community has been supportive of Jim Kelly throughout his battle. Chad told Brill the support is greatly appreciated.
“Amazing, on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, everybody has been nothing but prayers and thoughts and everything. You can never say enough ‘thank yous’ for all those people because that does help,” he said.
Chad recently decided to transfer to East Mississippi Community College (Junior College) after being dismissed from Clemson’s program. He plans to eventually transfer to another four-year university.
