Jim KellyScratch that, make that GREAT news, as Jim Kelly appears to be winning his very public battle with cancer. Today, Jim’s wife, Jill, posted an update about Jim’s progress on Instagram:

“We have come away from our checkup visit in NYC encouraged and hopeful. Preliminary scan results have necessitated the need for biopsies to be done in order to confirm what we hope to be true…that the cancer has been eradicated. We will not know the outcome until this procedure is completed. And so… We continue to PRAY, rejoice, live…wait and trust GOD who holds ALL things together. God, who is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End and every moment in between. In the midst of it all, I know He’s got this. Thank you for praying! Thank you for holding us up during this time. We are so grateful for you! #prayersforjk #kellytough”

Dr. Peter Costantino, Executive Director of the New York Head and Neck Institute at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan where Jim has been receiving treatment, also released a brief statement: “The treatments so far have completely eliminated Mr. Kelly’s pain, and his level of function has essentially returned to normal. Further, on physical examination, there is no evidence of the cancer.”
