QUOTE OF THE DAY
JIM KELLY, former Buffalo Bills and Hall of Fame QB, on thanking the numerous supporters who wished him well during his cancer treatment process:
“I want to thank personally everybody from this area. This community has rallied around me when I played for the Bills, when my son Hunter was diagnosed and of course my latest setback with cancer. The community’s prayers there are not enough words to describe the feeling in my heart and my family’s heart how much it means to me to have people take the time to email me, write me hundreds and hundreds of letters. Those prayers have been answered because of the things that I don’t have to do now.” via BuffaloBills.com (6/24)
