Hall of Fame Jim Kelly is Recovering from Oral Cancer

Earlier this year, I blogged about quarterback Jim Kelly and his battle against oral cancer.

I'm very passionate about fighting this disease because it frequently is a debilitating and disfiguring disease.

The secret to beating it is to catch it in its earliest phases, but that is often difficult.

If your dental office is not routinely doing oral cancer screenings/exams at every cleaning, request that they do so. We also use a variety of high tech devices to hat help us locate areas of concern at the earliest stages. I highly recommend that doctors acquire and use at least one of these.

CNN had a chance to talk with Jim Kelly recently about his checkup where doctors declared him "cancer free". It's a powerful video and I highly recommend you give it a look.
