New York, N.Y. (WBEN) - Bills Hall of Famer Jim Kelly is in New York City.  He underwent surgery Wednesday in his ongoing battle with cancer.

According to his wife Jill's Instagram post, doctors are hoping this is the final surgery. 

Thumbs up... For hand holding, Lavender hospital gowns, Blue hair nets... And the doctors telling us that this should be Jim’s last surgery. Thank you for praying us through. Your love, encouragement, and prayer support have blessed us beyond measure. While I wait for Jim, I’ll be praying. If you would like me to pray for you, please let me know. It’s an honor to do so.

Jill Kelly indicated to her followers that the surgery went "as planned" and thanked them for their prayers. 

In March, Kelly underwent a 12-hour surgery at Mout Sinai West Hospital in New York.  It dealt with the reconstruction of his upper jaw. Kelly was first diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in 2013. 

Kelly just recently appeared on the sidelines of Sunday's Bills game against Jacksonville at New Era Field.
