My first thought was Ebert but I think his started in the tongue. I met Kelly several times including when he was promoting bank loans like Marino and Palmer back in the 90s. Kelly was our spokesperson for a while.

I hope he pulls through alright and I know he has a lot of fans. I seem to remember him dipping even in person and you have to wonder if that plays a role here.

 
Jim Kelly has cancer, prognosis for recovery is goodPosted by Michael David Smith on June 3, 2013, 9:07 AM EDT
Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly has revealed that he has cancer.

Kelly, who played for the Bills from 1986 to 1996, said in a statement released by the team that he expects to make a full recovery.

“This past couple of weeks has been difficult for me and because of the nature of social media I thought it would be best to share with everyone what has been going on with my health,” Kelly said. “I was recently diagnosed with Squamous-cell carcinoma (cancer) of the upper jaw bone. I have undergone tests which have shown that the cancer is isolated to my upper jaw and has not spread to other parts of my body. Surgery is scheduled for June 7th and doctors have told me that the prognosis for my recovery is very good. With the excellent medical care that I will be receiving and the loving care of my wife Jill and my daughters Erin and Camryn and the support of my entire family and friends, I am extremely confident in my road to recovery.”

We credit Kelly for helping to raise awareness by addressing his health matter publicly, and we wish him well in his recovery.
 
How do you get that? Chewing tobacco ?

Always liked Kelly and hope he pulls through. Class act.

It's pretty unusual to get oral squamous cell carcinoma without the deadly duo of tobacco and alcohol.

 
Loses four Superbowls, his son dies and now this... did he kick god's dog or something?

Poor bloke. Hope he overcomes it swiftly and makes a full recovery.

Good point. I hope he pulls through. He has always seemed like a class act!

And a guy like Darren Sharper has a completely healthy jawbone. Life just isn't fair!
