BUFFALO, N.Y. - Miami Hurricanes legend and Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly received some great news regarding his most recent battle with cancer.

Kelly's wife, Jill, used Instagram this week to let everyone know her husband's MRI came back clean following surgery in November.

"We finally got back the results from Jim’s recent MRI...CLEAN! Thank GOD! It took a bit longer than usual because of all the reconstruction Jim has had inside his mouth. They wanted to be certain that all was good..."

Kelly, who starred for the University of Miami from 1979-82, underwent the recent surgery in New York City. The former Bills quarterback had also undergone surgery in March 2018 to reconstruct his jaw and remove another cancer cell.

In 2013, Kelly was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in his jaw.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

We finally got back the results from Jim’s recent MRI...CLEAN! Thank GOD! It took a bit longer than usual because of all the reconstruction Jim has had inside his mouth. They wanted to be certain that all was good... This extra waiting has been a reminder for me. A reminder to remember the WHO and not the what. The bigger picture and not the present outcome. Although God is in all of it, I needed to be reminded (yet again) that this is not the end of the story. It’s a page. A chapter. It’s part of the greater story. Hope this reminds you that THIS (whatever your “this” is) is NOT the end of the story. Immeasurably more is always in store for those who hope in the Lord! AMEN!
