Hunter's Hope was established in 1997 by Pro Football Hall of Fame member and former Buffalo Bills Quarterback, Jim Kelly, and his wife, Jill, after their infant son, Hunter, was diagnosed with Krabbe leukodystrophy, an inherited, fatal, nervous system disease. The Foundation is the Kelly's lifelong commitment to increase public awareness of leukodystrophies as well as to increase the likelihood of early detection and treatment.
