    I wonder why he didn’t have treatment at Roswell Park Institute right in Buffalo?

    He did, but better doctors were in NYC…I think he’ll resume treatment at Roswell.

    Either way, it’s great to see him home and in good spirits…lots of fans showed up to welcome him home. That’s why us Bills fans are so great and why we deserve to have someone come in and save the team.

    Honestly…how many other teams would show the love and support for one of their heroes, like we have for Jimbo and Ralph?

    Not many, it any at all. #BuffaloStrong

    Best wishes to Jim and his family. Times like these should make us all Buffalo Bill fans.

    And as someone that had their Sonics uplifted and moved, I’m pulling for the people of Buffalo Nation to keep their team in Buffalo. Small market teams that still pack the house to a sellout crowd to watch a subpar team in freezing temperatures like Bill’s fans will always have my respect.

    Jim Kelly is pure class. He is the Richard Burton of the NFL.

    Hes moving back to Buffalo for treatment. And this news comes on the same day thet his brother suggests hes going to put in a bid for the Bills. Jim Kelly is one hell of a guy.

    Here’s wishing you the best, Jim. You are a class act.

    “He did, but better doctors were in NYC…I think he’ll resume treatment at Roswell.”

    Actually, he started treatment at Erie County Medical Center (ECMC). Kelly never went to Roswell Park. When his initial treatment didn’t take, seems as if his doctors at ECMC had him consult specialists at Sloan-Kettering in NYC. I hope he makes a full recovery now. Jim Kelly’s as tough as nails in every respect.

    Jim, wishing you all of the best and sending prayers. You will beat this!!!!

    This might be the dumbest question of all time, but is Kelly able to benefit from that stem cell therapy that seems so promising?

    Jim,
    As you are aware of that the Buffalo Bill Fans and the city of Buffalo wish you well and stay strong. We will be praying for you and others with this deadly disease Cancer. For my own self, I wish you speedy recovery. Wish you was still playing for the team and have the original team of the nineties.
