Get well soon Jimbo.
Watching Jim play created some of the greatest sports memories in my life when I was a kid and really haven't been rivaled since. I hope he gets well soon, because no matter what anyone says he's a great ambassador for a city nobody ever fights for, and a great fundraiser for charity.

I wish Jim the best. I hope he kicks its ass like he did on the field.
My prayers go out to him and his family.
They have to find a cure for cancer. It effects to many people in the world.

Did he chew tobacco?
Wish him luck--he's got a long road ahead.

My boss died from it a couple of months back... still pisses me off we can't cure this after decades of cash, cash and more cash...
That cash has done great things. When I was a kid, a cancer diagnosis sounded like a death sentence. That is no longer the case, at all.........The Yankees broadcast last night had an appearance by Michael Milliken, who is very involved in prostate cancer research. He teamed up with the Yankees 18 years ago, and either since then or in the last ten years (forget which one) - the death rate from prostate cancer has decreased by 50%. That's unreal!
Cancer is a thousand different diseases and there will not be a "cure for cancer." You find this stuff out when your family has it.
I actually have to say that I know way way more cancer survivors than people who died from cancer.
From the little bit I've read on this type, I think Jimbo will beat this as well.

Not sure if y'all know about the national commercial running, touting Buffalo as a great place to do business, but JK has a prominent part in that spot. Have been seeing it a lot lately on the national cable news channels.

I haven't read anything on this. What kind of stuff can cause this? Risk factors? Or does it just happen?

My mother died from it....have other relatives that survived and some not. It is a horrible disease but research is helping. I think it's very difficult to cure as it has many forms but progress has been made.
People are going to be very surprised to see him post surgery... my boss's surgery to try and remove the cancer left his face like Roger Ebert's... he had to use a pad to write down longer speech and carried a towel to wipe his drool. It wasn't enough to save him, and I can only hope this surgery is enough to save Jim Kelly.
