Recently, Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly got a clean bill of health after battling yet another round of squamous cell carcinoma in his face.

On Thursday, he was in Orlando visiting the Pro Bowl teams during practice and ran into fellow cancer survivor James Conner, running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The two of them posed for quite the inspirational photo, which was shared by Kelly’s wife Jill who wrote, “These two know the game of football. And they know cancer. Superstars and survivors…NEVER GIVE UP! Another Pro Bowl highlight and another reason to cheer for the AFC.”


Kelly also got a chance to toss the pigskin around, which is just a glorious sight considering all he’s been through the past few years.
