Former quarterback Jim Kelly danced with wife on Mother's Day

Former first round draft pick out of the University of Miami – Jim Kelly is currently facing one of the toughest challenges in his life.

The 2002 Hall of Fame inductee has been dealing with squamous cell carcinoma since June of last year, which is a cancer of the upper jaw or sinus cancer if you will. Kelly underwent surgery shortly after he was diagnosed and it was reported that he was cancer free. But it didn’t last no longer than a year.

On March 14 of this year – former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly found out that his cancer had come back for a second round. Kelly has been nothing but positive about his situation and even mentioned how he was looking forward to who the Bills would draft on the eighth.

His daughter Erin Kelly is an active user on Instagram and has posted pictures of her Father’s hard fought journey. Yesterday she posted a photo of her parents dancing with the caption ‘Daddy just wanted to dance with his bride on Mother’s Day’ followed up with the hash-tag of prayersforjk.

Here’s a look at the touching photo of Jim Kelly and his wife Jill sharing a dance in his hospital room.
