That's Kelly's daughter Erin, who posted this photo on Saturday night.

Here are more details, from the AP:

Doctors for the 54-year-old former Buffalo Bills star are leaning toward surgery Thursday or perhaps April 1 at a New York City hospital, brother Dan Kelly told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Kelly's doctors in Buffalo said March 14 the cancer was found to have returned when Kelly had follow-up tests after surgery last June to remove cancerous cells from his upper jaw.

In the meantime, Kelly has received visits from former teammates Andre Reed, Bruce Smith and Thurman Thomas, too.

"He's strong," Kelly's brother Dan told The AP on Tuesday. ''Jim is humbled by all the prayers coming in.''
