Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly was nearly lost for words on Thursday upon learning follow-up tests revealed he shows no signs of having sinus cancer.
"I don't even know what to do with myself. I'm so overwhelmed. I'm so thankful," Kelly was quoted as saying in a message posted on his wife Jill Kelly's Instagram account. "I want to literally hug and thank all of you in person."
Kelly was informed of the results by his doctor, Peter Costantino, a week after having a series of biopsies performed at New York City's Lenox Hill Hospital.
The results confirmed an initial physical exam Costantino performed two weeks ago, and come three months after Kelly completed radiation and chemotherapy treatments.
Costantino is the head of the hospital's head and neck institute, and oversaw Kelly's treatments since the former Buffalo Bills star was first diagnosed with sinus cancer in March.
Kelly called it "a long road" and said he's not yet fully recovered from cancer treatments.
