BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly won't be coming to his home in Suburban Buffalo to celebrate Easter after all. The family now s planning to spend Easter in New York City before resuming treatments for sinus cancer next week.


Kelly's wife, Jill, took to Twitter on Thursday saying


Looks like we'll be celebrating Easter in NYC. #PrayersForJK


Dan Kelly said his brother had a rough stretch last week following his first chemotherapy session on April 8. He said the treatments are particularly painful because they're targeting cancer cells attached to nerves in Kelly's maxillary sinus and adjacent tissues.


Kelly is scheduled to have two more chemotherapy sessions and is also having radiation treatment five days a week.
