Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Kelly has completed his first round of chemotherapy.

Jill Kelly wrote on Twitter that her husband’s first round of chemo is done.

The Kelly family has been open about the challenges Jim has faced since he was diagnosed with oral cancer. Kelly has revealed that he will have two more rounds of chemotherapy in the next six weeks, and he will also have daily radiation treatments.

Kelly’s doctor has described his cancer as “very treatable and potentially curable.”
