Parent and always be frightened when I talk about the hidden portals of my brain you never know what might happen next 634 is ready at 930 WB yen. We -- following -- Jim Kelly story and you know ordinarily have to -- -- and and I would not be talking so much about one individual. And one individuals battle with cancer. The Kelly family. -- I'd like this out because it's important to me because I like to respect people's medical privacy unlike certain. Reporters like Bob McCarthy in this town. I believe that. It is his business what he's going through in the hospital. And what the what he is going through. In terms of the struggles day today with cancer. And the Kelly family has elected. And I think very classically so to let us all into it. During these very trying times. -- a family. They have asked for your prayers. And they've also included you. And they've included me. In the information. That they have it is they're shorts. To go public with what they have gone with how they have gone public otherwise it would be talking much about Jim Kelly. Because I'm not Robert McCartney from the Buffalo News. Sleaze ball now. My phone number is 03 all night there. Start at thirty on the cell phone 180616. WB EM. What else we have here. I just wanna make it clear to there are several sites. About Jim -- -- Jill Kelly has her own page on FaceBook easy to find Jill Kelly. There's also a prayers for Jim Kelly. Page on FaceBook. You can access. Ends and send a message you know what's really nice to. Know how to start to cry if I get too much into this like -- get through as quickly. Every one of those messages you guys are sending. To the Kelly family. Are being ripped by the Kelly -- It's not like they're just building up and nobody's reading them an issue of some kind of a one way I'll let. You really far. Making a difference. For won them a very famous family and relatively wealthy families of course. But a family that has a man who is very sick. And who is in -- second battle with cancer. And prayers for Jim Kelly has about 5000 members last I checked. And the like do not adhere to any specific religion. I do have a very strong faith in the creator. And I do believe. In -- I don't know why sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't I don't know. I do notice that doesn't hurt. 03 don't like thirty start -- 3180616. WB yet but it just wanna make it real clear. That everything I'm sharing with you I'm sharing because. The Jim Kelly family has elected to share with others otherwise it would be none of my business. Let's get back to the calls on WB -- here is GM and East Amherst hello Jim. Hello Jim but. I'd say about what is -- -- and the Kelly family. Isaak posters treatment. And out this year I I -- about cancer treatment at Roswell. Like your -- caller and I'm. Very grateful that -- -- they did a great job. I got treatment back and -- are all oral five. And I wanted to share it might be. Somewhat similar to that which -- gonna have -- air -- cancer in the upper neck area. Two a similar area and three rounds of chemo followed by. About thirty. Radiation treatments. When you say three rounds of chemo how many sessions per round. OK so three different experiences having to go get chemo three different times. Three visits okay okay. And this year something interesting about the radiation treatment -- -- is. When they'd -- patient treatment it's extremely important that they. Are extremely accurate where they shoot every -- -- has to be accurate and I'll I'll -- than an inch. And so when you're going to prepare for. -- at a time they actually made it are there my head and -- Otto like hard plastic. Com. -- -- OK did you OK I have to no use if you're one of my listeners you have to have a six cents a year over did you ask the doctor -- making a death mask. All because that you know I would have more orders is my death -- what. As -- -- I try to bring humor to things like this -- when it's myself. Because I find that misery makes sport to mock itself. So are you didn't even make a joke with the doctor I'm sorry buy nor to that question. Right here right now I didn't ask but it's an exact tester -- your neck and had. A big east and you're goal in -- your. Radiation treatment which for me was every day. Do you view and the table and then this this helmet is locked into place and the table so he gambled. And then out there radiation is is as pinpoint actors here where there where they're directing. And in your case it where is it worked. Oh yeah let's all oral fired and I've -- -- ever since -- down. Just extremely grateful that you Roswell. Jim I have one question for you and editors now that you are officially are cleared of cancer you're past that five year window. How diligent you have to be with follow ups having had the pre existing. Bout with the disease. White people are not here. And so you -- rob Lowe's that you -- went -- a schedule of follow up. Checks and you'll have. He'd keep checks and I'm blood but checks and bolt thing or not. So are you yet you people are not certain not to do it based case so -- yeah you have to be very regimented that. Well I am very happy. I have pictures still here to tell us the story and I know Jim's is in the -- -- scientists the area -- -- described early her earlier. It is according to the doctor treatable. And -- potentially curable. I don't know what the odds are and I'm gonna wait until the Kelly family decides how much and and what they release. Instead of engaging in speculation. Thank you very much Jim I'm glad you called. It 030930. -- news radio 930 WBE. And and yeah I mean the Kelly family -- the class. Exhibited -- our Jill Kelly he's very frequent updates to people who. Again they know Jim Kelly by name they know Jim Kelly by reputation especially reputation over the past ten to fifteen years. They love Jim Kelly even though they've never been to the Jim Kelly house. But joked Kelly notes. What a figure. Her husband is and has elected to share the information with us like a big family. And we found out from jail earlier today that GM is not going to have the cancer there are some great. Well I say great but that's not really the rightward touching there are some very touching photographs. The Kelly family this year Whitman's -- daughter -- with their dad. And a beautiful picture of Jim Kelly's dad hugging Jim Kelly. And just. Beautiful. Pictures. And Jim looks like a sick man. You would look like a sick -- If by you were going through this and again we wish nothing but the best to Jim. And all you prayer warriors out there who. Do your thing you don't need to be told you'll do it anyway you've been doing it anyway especially the very large church family Jimmie has a very large. Local church. Let's go to some more calls on WB Ian -- in -- log space rolled in rich and they tell me you beat cancer I -- -- about this. I gotta tell you this with a conversation that I wanted to share with you you -- particular for about a year. And well you know look at the statistics are. They had approximately one in four people. Will be affected by cancer he struck by cancer. My feeling is about the statistical average. Between my two parents my brother night three of the four of us. It's -- cancer. I have come to conclusions -- you said that this was specifically about made that given that given the constellation. Of statistically improbable medical oddities that my body has had over the past three years. That I'm going to die by being hit by a meteorite. That will be my faith on this planet -- go ahead. And -- know every time -- say that I can relate to win and I will tell you why first stop. In 1980. My mother was diagnosed with cancer. It was these type of cancer that eventually killed fair process and and she is allied to this day. Yet. And it could very particular type of colorectal and -- in 1980. I don't know they had anesthesia back then but the treatments of radiation chemo really -- Her. Quality of life. Mitt you kind of cut out to think you've got an incoming call right that that always happens you wait for an hour the minute I pick up the phone people say always other radio let's call him well. Out -- can -- But okay your mom went through an ordeal. In 1980 with the Colo rectal cancer and what you said I mean I I infer from that that she was under a great deal of pain bordering on agony. Oh absolutely and oddly enough at the time almost everybody that had their form of cancer had to have a clock to me. She declined debt mostly because she stubborn. But she was one of them knew they told me that she was in the you know medical journal that the time for the way that she was able to handle that. -- Yes or use. Last year it was you turn fifty correct. Must you remind me yes. In the united. I recall when I turned thirty. And when I turned forty. Those were very difficult. Milestones for me. -- the age of 47 I was diagnosed with cancer. And I got to tell you when you hear the words you've got cancer 47 -- and if he doesn't look only at bat. Perspectives -- correct. And with all the stuff that you've gone through I mean you don't talk about it now so I mean you've managed it but I thought with all the stuff -- gone through I don't believe that. Probably feel good about still being -- Tom. You know what I don't honestly I don't really think about it that I told you this before that the big stuff doesn't bother me it's a little stuff that bothers me I've been through three major things in the last two and a half years. And the big things I basically you know basically -- eight by way of life -- is. It's in God's hands. It in my house. In the in models to us -- in your hands got in Latin at Columbia wiser. Tom so I just I just put that over to him and I don't worry about the big stuff. -- well. Here's the caution but I have to put up there for you rich and for anybody. Don't overdo it. Don't try to be Superman I tried recovering I tried coming back way early. And eventually your body eventually says screw you dude you need some sleep. You know I'm a model patient. I am a model patient I island. CL not to prove a tough plan what it's Napoleon syndrome -- -- -- Well I'm glad -- -- now what's the prognosis rich let's finish the story. Well here's the thing you don't you mentioned a couple of times how deep and a number of medical problems you can't. Are like out of a little out of nowhere there's you know there was no way you could -- All not just out of the blue raider statistically rigor. The population of the world. My particular cancer was prostate cancer. And at the age of 47 you're not supposed to get that I have no history of it in my family nobody -- I even know yet. Yes I had surgery that would be preferred treatment option AM. What one might nurses that is very true you always trade something. The surgery. So my life has been impacted by this. Once the cancer patient I have to tell you always a cancer patients. This was in 2007. So I -- past five years now. But you know we never really forgot. It's every time but you feel confident your body you think oh my god coming back. And it's just the way you've got to live with it. Now how did they detect the prostate cancer with a digital exam first or was it the PSA test. -- it was a PSA tests. And there might be one of those articles that -- don't get the PSA test that wanna choke the laughter. You know what I've had this conversation with my urologist I just does not have the PSA test -- -- might have to most of the -- his finger there what anybody's finger. Well. I don't wanna -- -- and really good. Along with it doesn't ask you if you want. Two fingers. My doctor does because -- -- well well he knows me he knows me well enough unlike his ideal patient because I don't care what he says. My job is to laugh at the -- office and get him to crack up. And you wanna tell you what I said the last time we did it but it was rather graphic I have to move on. But I'm glad you called. 030930. Yeah I told he was gonna make. 640 -- radio 930 WB EM I say can't joke with your doctors. Wrong doctor. All my doctors. I'm a big deal with -- -- and gloom and doom every day. You know I want to be the guy who isn't like there. I think to break don't -- I'm WB EN. Unfortunately gang I do not have time to take more phone calls from me but I promise you know I enjoy hearing your stories and I am deeply humbled by the trust you having me. And your fellow listeners to call to -- these intimate details so a lot thank you we will revisit the cancer topic believe me. Now while one cancer I thought would come up today that did not come up today is set testicular cancer. I happen to know of someone who died very young from -- testicular cancer. A friend of different Arab brother of different. The average age for diagnosis is 33. So testicular cancer tends to be a young to middle aged man's disease. And something else that I mentioned earlier. On the subject of throat cancer and please understand I'm not trying to be gratuitously sexual here. But there are three big causes of throat cancer number one -- smoking and tobacco stuff number two is drinking. And number three. It's kind of a recent discovery. To put it delicately the more women with whom you have oral sex Edwards more women you'd do. You perform oral sex on the greater the likelihood. Of throat cancer so please keep that in mind dementia doctor knows about that. Nothing -- be ashamed of nothing to hide from your doctor needs to know by your your sexual history because you start developing throat cancer symptoms but you don't smoke drink. He's got a he or she is don't wanna know what yours -- you -- let -- go to try to see you look at yourself guys. Oral sex and throat cancer there it's a relation. Peck I get scope every year you wanted to be honest with you I do it -- that I mean I get the test well you. All right we just totally lost control of the shallow but it's at the end of the show anyway and I'm gonna run out of -- my -- hidden thanks to Joseph -- thanks to John Sherman and I will leave you with to work -- -- -- -- I'll leave you with -- two words. You know yourself and back god speed Jim Kelly and everybody with cancer.
