Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly is battling oral cancer again, but he remains active in fundraising to find a cure for the disease. On Sunday, he was in New Hartford, New York for an appearance that benefited the American Cancer Society.
Kelly participated in a meet and greet, signed autographs and took photos with fans. His Sunday visit was sponsored by Cooperstown Connection, the Gentlemen's Corner Barber Shop and Sangertown Square.
Kelly often speaks and holds appearances in Western New York due to his popularity among Bills fans. He was most recently in the area in July as the speaker for the Observer-Dispatch's inaugural All-Mohawk Valley All-Star Award Banquet.
Kelly played his entire 11-year career with Buffalo and led the franchise to four straight Super Bowl appearances. He was a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro.
In 1991, Kelly was named a first-team All-Pro after leading the NFL in passing touchdowns. He also led the league in passer rating during the 1990 season.
Kelly was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007 and his #12 jersey is one of two retired by the Bills. He has been a successful businessman in retirement and raises funds for Krabbe disease research in addition to his work with cancer.
