Jim Kelly's doctor: "No evidence of the cancer"

Jim Kelly has gone through many battles throughout both his playing career and life to earn the respect and adoration from many around the country. Upon finding out that Kelly's cancer had returned, the support and prayers spilled out for both he and his family in the extremely trying time.

After an enduring stretch of both radiation and chemotherapy treatments, the initial tests for the former Buffalo Bills quarterback and Hall of Famer have come back with the results everyone had been hoping for.

In a statement from Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, it was revealed that in the three months after the conclusion of the treatments that Kelly, his family and Bills fans everywhere had something to cheer about.

"The treatments so far have completely eliminated Mr. Kelly's pain, and his level of function has essentially returned to normal," said Dr. Peter Costantino. "Further, on physical examination, there is no evidence of cancer."

The former Bills quarterback will now undergo some additional testing over the course of the next week.

"It is possible that no further treatment will be required, and the testing over the next week will define the issue."

Thank you god.
Way to go kelly on the way you fought your way back. Lord only knows we did not need another bill to leave us. But in our hearts we knew you could do it. You always had that i am not going down without a fight in you. On the field and off the field Now kelly just sit back with the rest of us. And watch the bills kick some primetime a$$. I said this plenty of times before but these bills got a lot prove to themsevles the fans and to late Mr Wilson And The Kellys. For me that the reason why i think they are going to make the playoffs. It's Just to many people and the league that's already counting us out. And the players keep on saying to them. Watch,listen,and you are going to learn about counting us out. Hey i am with you boys. Lets get ready to tear the nfl up. lets go ruff buff.

Kelly Tough
Jim, I liked you a bunch when we drafted you, didn't like you at all in Houston, liked you early on as a Bill, grew to love you as a repeat AFC Champion, grew to respect you outside of football as Hunter's devoted Dad and finally realized you were off the charts admirable as you fought your cancer. Bravo my man! You motivate me to fight the obstacles I face and I'd be comfortable guessing I'm far from alone in that.

Congrats Jim!
I admire your strength and courage! We fought for your number in school. I'd love to see the Bills bring u on if your bid falls through "which I hope it doesn't"! The city would love it and EJ could use the help! Congrats man! Bills backers of Florida!
