Kellys subject of PBS broadcast
Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly and his family have made no secret that their religious faith has helped them deal with his cancer diagnosis and other challenges, but most importantly, it helped them deal with their son Hunter's struggle with and ultimate death from Krabbe Disease. The importance of that faith will be featured Sunday on "Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly." The segment will air at 12:30 p.m. on WNED-TV. The Hunter's Hope Foundation was founded by the Kelly's to assist families affected by Krabbe Disease or other Leukodystrophies. Anna Gratham explains, however, that religion is not a part of the foundation.
"We're not a Christian organization. I mean, our founders happen to be Christian, but we're not affiliated with a religion. But our families face that. We want to be open to whoever is affected by Krabbe and Leukodystrophies no matter what their religious affiliation."
Gratham is the Director of Newborn Screening, Education & Awareness for Hunter's Hope.
The filming of the Kellys is a component of the Ken Burns production of "Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies."
