Pro Football Hall of Famer, Jim Kelly, is known as being the only quarterback in history to lead his team to the Super Bowl in four consecutive seasons. He joined Kara Conrad from Minneapolis, to share his football memories and to talk about his role in the Your Cancer Game Plan Challenge.
"The bottom line is we all go through times, but your attitude that you have, surrounding yourself with good people and knowing where to turn. I didn't know where to turn. Now that's what were trying to do through Your Cancer Game Plan is to let people out there know that you're not going to be by yourself. There's help out there. Log on to one of these groups and find out how they can help you make a difference and that's what it's all about," says Kelly about the reasoning behind partnering with Merck, an American pharmaceutical company.
Kelly is challenging people to go online for the next 30 days and pick an advocacy group and donate $5, then share it on social media and Merck will donate $5 to that foundation. There are more than 20 groups listed on the site.
Your Cancer Game Plan has resources such as health and nutrition, emotional well-being, communication and support for people who are living with cancer.
