(WHAM) - Jim Kelly will be heading to New York City Tuesday to get ready for surgery.

The former Buffalo Bills quarterback posted last week on his Instagram account that he would be undergoing another surgery after his cancer returned.

Kelly has been fighting cancer for the last five years since his first diagnosis in 2013.

The surgery is scheduled for March 29.

In a statement released on March 1, Kelly said the oral cancer he had beaten twice has come back.

Kelly beat the disease once and was declared cancer free, only to see it resurface again.
