NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly danced with his wife on Mother's Day in the hospital where he is undergoing his second battle with cancer.

ESPN reports that Kelly's daughter, Erin, captured the photo of her parents and posted it to her Instagram account this week with a caption that read, "Daddy just wanted to dance with his bride on Mother's Day."

The former Buffalo Bills quarterback was diagnosed with sinus cancer in late March, and shortly thereafter began chemotherapy at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan on April 8. The latest bout comes less than a year after Kelly in June had part of his upper jaw removed because of cancer. He now wears teeth and bone prostheses.

Kelly's wife Jill and daughter Erin have kept fans informed of Jim's progress throughout his treatment — snapping photos of him returning home from the hospital, celebrating Easter, etc. — and the outpouring of supportive responses have given the family strength.

On May 2, Jim thanked everyone for their support in a video posted to Facebook by his wife, and said he looked forward to the upcoming draft.


After the draft, a few new players even stopped by to see the football legend.

Jill Kelly posted the picture of Sammy Watkins and Darius Robinson with her husband, writing, "To end the day, a visit from a few rookies! Jim had a heart full to share tonight with these two . . . loved listening to him talk about what he's learned along the way! Excited for the #BuffaloBills and our community!"
