Advice for Caregivers: It's Okay to Not be Okay Sometimes

November 8, 2018

In this week’s episode of CURE Talks Cancer, we spoke with Jill Kelly – wife of Pro Football Hall of Fame Quarterback Jim Kelly – about his bout with head and neck cancer, and how she copes as a caregiver.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, and every moment is a gift, no matter what that moment looks like, says Jill Kelly, wife of Pro Football Hall of Fame Quarterback Jim Kelly.

Jill is very familiar with the caregiver role — first helping her son Hunter, who was diagnosed with a fatal nervous system disease in 1997, and now with her husband, who was diagnosed with his third bout with head and neck cancer earlier this year.

In conjunction with National Family Caregivers Month, we spoke with Jill Kelly about her husband’s journey with cancer, and how she copes as a caregiver through her family, journaling and her faith.
