Legendary Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly is traveling to New York City today to start around of surgery to battle cancer.

Jill Kelly took to Instagram to announce the family is headed to NYC today as Jim gets ready for surgery.


Kelly announced in early March that cancer had returned. He was first diagnosed with cancer in 2013 but had been cancer free since 2014.

Today's surgery will Kelly will allow doctors to reconstruct his upper jaw using part of his leg. The surgery will close a large hole inside his jaw where doctors had operated back in 2014.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim and his whole family.
