Jim Kelly 'praying for a miracle' before big battle starts
Jim Kelly took a break from the hospital over the weekend.
The Hall of Famer and Bills legend took in a Knicks game at Madison Square Garden on Friday night, just a few days before he will begin chemotherapy and radiation treatments on Monday.
"I hope when it's all over they get everything, but right now we're praying for a miracle," Kelly said.
Kelly will have three sessions of chemotherapy over a six-week period as well as daily radiation treatments designed to shrink the several small tumors that are spreading in his head.
Despite what's in store for him, the prognosis for Kelly remains positive.
"Kelly's condition remains very treatable and potentially curable," Dr. Peter Constantino told ESPN.com. "Even if chemotherapy and radiation are not successful in eradicating the cancer, his skull-base tumor remains operable."
Kelly wants all of your well-wishes to keep coming, too.
"Just keep praying for me," he said. "I am going to need them."
