Jim Kelly is a Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback whose hallmark as a player was his toughness on the field. From growing up in a small town in Pennsylvania called East Brady, to facing a career threatening injury in his college days, to leading the Buffalo Bills team to an unprecedented four straight AFC championships, Jim’s toughness has been tested time and time again. After his NFL retirement, not only did he lose his one and only son Hunter, who was born on Valentine’s Day which is also his birthday, to a disease called Krabbe Leukodystrophy at the age of 8, Jim has also survived not one, but three battles with cancer. Jim speaks about the power of the four F’s – Faith, Friends, Family and Fans and what is really means to be “Kelly Tough.”  His story is “A Journey of Perseverance”
