PHOTO: Bills Draft Choice Sammy Watkins with Jim Kelly

Bills draft choices Sammy Watkins and Darius Robinson have stopped by to share well wishes with Buffalo Bill Hall of Fame Quarterback Jim Kelly as he battles cancer.

Kelly initially underwent surgery in Buffalo last June to remove cancerous cells from his upper jaw. A follow-up test in March revealed that the cancer had returned to his sinus cavity and was dangerously close to the carotid artery in his head.  In April he began a series of radiation and chemotherapy treatments, first at Lennox Hill hospital in New York City, and then after Easter when he returned to his home in East Aurora.

As she chronicles her husbands struggle , wife Jill Kelly has once again sent out a photo, this one courtesy of daughter Erin.

To end the day, a visit from a few rookies! Jim had a heart full to share tonight with these two...loved listening to him talk about what he's learned along the way! Excited for the #BuffaloBills and our community! The Kelly Family is cheering you on @sammywatkins and Darius Robinson #prayersforJK #GoBills

Earlier in the week,  Jill also sent out this picture of Jim and her dancing together on Mothers' Day
