Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly’s cancer treatment will be delayed by a week.
As explained by Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, a fever has prevented the chemotherapy from commencing.
“He’s had a couple setbacks,” Kelly’s brother, Dan, told Graham. “It’s always this or that. We have to make sure Jim doesn’t get sick leading into this.”
Seven weeks of chemotherapy and radiation will begin next Monday. The goal will be to shrink numerous small tumors located in areas that make surgery impossible, for now.
The good news is that doctors have gotten Kelly’s migraines under control.
“They have his pain pretty much under control, and that’s been hurting all of us, just seeing him in so much pain,” Dan Kelly said. “They have some of the best pain-management doctors here I’ve ever seen. Jim is comfortable now, and that’s the most important thing.”
We continue to extend our best wishes to Kelly and his family.
