Jim Kelly's Family and Friends Open Up

Jim Kelly's family is starting to share more about the former Buffalo Bills quarterback as he continues to battle cancer.

Jim's wife Jill wrote a blog, posted Friday afternoon, where she describes a meeting with a man named Jason who is also battling cancer and was receiving treatment at the same facility as her husband.

In the blog, Jill writes that "the cancer's back, aggressive, and starting to spread."

On Instagram an emotional photo posted by his daughter Erin shows Jim with one of his brothers, and Hall of Fame teammates Thurman Thomas and Bruce Smith along with future Hall of Famer Andre Reed.

It was just last June Kelly said he was on the road to recovery and did not need chemo or radiation.

As you might imagine the latest developments are taking a toll on his family. On her Facebook page Jill wrote: "I don't know how to adequately thank you for praying for Jim. The last few days have been very difficult. Please continue to pray."

Also on Friday, students at Christian Central Academy in Williamsville held a special Jim Kelly Day.
