I'm amazed he survived this long.

I think I saw a Real Sports story on Hunter years ago. Jim or his wife had to give him a kind of massage where they lightly beat on his back because his lungs would fill with fluid. Now that I think about it, there are a couple of QBs that had children with pretty severe special needs, I don't remember the others right now. RIP Hunter

Doug Flutie's son has autism, IIRC. Boomer Esiason's son has cystic fibrosis.

And Mark Rypiens son died of cancer. Trent Dilfer's son died as well (heart disease).

Very sad to hear of this. Alot of coverage was made about him and I know the Kelly family fought hard to make his life as long/comfortable as possible. Im glad his son was alive when Kelly made the Hall of Fame.

Joe Jureviscious (sp?) WR of Tampa Bay also lost his son at an early age due to a sickness.

That's sad. Anyone find it kinda odd that a substantial amount of NFL players have children with handicaps? You don't hear about it too often in other sports. I wonder if it has anything to do with being a football player.

I hope Jim continues to fight and try and find a cure for this disease. That way his sons memory can live on forever.

It was nice of Dan Marino and Steve Young to mention The Kelly Family in their Hall of Fame Speeches.

That sounds like Boomer's kid with CF. it is a common thing to help break up the mucus that builds up.
