Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly, who continues to his fight against cancer, took a few steps Sunday and danced with his wife, Jill, to commemorate Mother’s Day.
A photo posted by his daughter on Instagram included the cutline: “Daddy just wanted to dance with his bride on Mother’s Day #prayersforjk”
Kelly has two daughters. His son, Hunter, whose battle with a fatal nervous system disease inspired Kelly’s charitable works, died in 2005 at the age of 8.
In March, Kelly was diagnosed with cancer for the second time in eight months. The legendary Bills quarterback’s first battle with jaw cancer concluded with surgery in June 2013. This time, however, his wife wrote on her personal blog that “the cancer’s back, aggressive, and starting to spread” and would not require surgery. Kelly underwent radiation and chemotherapy.
Jim Kelly returned home to Buffalo to continue his recover almost a month ago.
