Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly delivered an update of his cancer treatment on his Facebook account.
Kelly thanked fans for their support in a 15-second video that was posted by his wife, Jill.
"Hello everyone. I'm just getting ready to go to my 19th treatment for radiation and I've already had two bouts of chemo. Keep those prayers coming, I sure need them. Without you I wouldn't be able to get through this. God bless you. Look forward to the Bills' draft on May eighth," he said.
Jill Kelly said the radiation and chemotherapy have put a strain on her husband and that the video was "a stretch for Jim to do this ... but he wanted to thank everyone." She also said he was "halfway done" with his cancer treatment.
The Hall of Famer was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in June 2013. After surgery that declared him cancer-free, a follow-up in March showed the cancer had returned.
Kelly, who led the Bills to four Super Bowls in the 1990s, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2001
