Celebrity Friends Visit Quarterback Jim Kelly as He Fights Cancer

BUFFALO (KRON) — Jim Kelly took the Buffalo Bills to the Super Bowl four years in a row but now it’s his friends who are coming to him.

The Hall of Fame quarterback is fighting the return of cancer and was unable to attend a celebrity golf tournament over the weekend to raise money for his care.

The Bills say celebrity friends like Chris Berman, Dan Marino, Bill Polian and many others visited with Kelly in recent days. Here’s an Instagram photo Kelly took with ESPN anchor Chris Berman.

The team says Kelly also had to shave his head because of his cancer treatment so his brothers shaved theirs as well in solidarity.

Kelly led the Bills to four consecutive Super Bowls but couldn’t bring home the championship. He was a first-ballot inductee into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002.
