Cincinnati Bengals, DT, Devon Still announced that his 4 year old daughter’s battle with cancer is not over with yet.
Still had this to say on social media, “I wanted to hear so bad that my daughter’s cancer was gone and when I didn’t hurt me bad. I couldn’t even bring myself to tell my family the results without breaking down. I honestly just wanted to shut down from every one. But I understand that blessing don’t happen when I want them to, they happen when they’re suppose to. So we are going to keep faith and keep fighting no matter what. #LeahStrong #BeatCancer.”
Leah has been in the media since her diagnoses. Still was originally released from the rooster, but brought back on as inactive. The Bengals later activated him and he became a starter once again.
Since her illness came out, Still’s jersey hit a record high in sales. Every jersey purchased was a donation for the cause. In Nov. for Thursday night football against the Browns, Leah got to watch her Dad play for the first time.
During half-time, The Bengals donated $1.3 million to the Cincinnati’s Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Leah’s name.
Leah has undergone surgeries and chemotherapies and Still was hopeful that when her treatments were over, that her cancer would be over with too.
