Aug 24, 2018, 12:00 PM

Jim Kelly is a decorated NFL Hall of Fame quarterback who led the Buffalo Bills to four consecutive Super Bowl appearances and six divisional championships from 1988 to 1995.

In 2013, Jim was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in his upper jaw and has since experienced two recurrences. While looking to the four Fs (faith, family, friends and the fans) to help him through his cancer journey, Jim lives by making the difference today for someone who is fighting for their tomorrow. It is because of this, Jim was honored with the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance at this year’s ESPY Awards.

In this special edition of CURE Talks Cancer, we spoke with Jim about his experience with head and neck cancer, and the humbling experience of winning the Jimmy V award.
