Kelly Making Progress in Cancer Recovery

Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly received a visit recently from one of his dear friends, who says prayers are being answered.

Dennis DiPaolo, of Ilio DiPaolo's Restaurant, says Kelly enjoyed some of his favorites. "He and his brother Ray enjoyed some pasta, Italian beans and chicken parm. He finished the whole plate, did a great job," says DiPaolo. Kelly is getting stronger and has been able to get out. "People have seen him shopping and doing things, and that's great," adds DiPaolo.

One more thing that's great, says DiPaolo, is the fact Kelly will be at his quarterback camp in Amherst this morning. "For the kids it'll be a special moment, and it's one of his favorite times of the year, throwing the ball around," notes DiPaolo.
