NFL player Devon Still gave a gut-wrenching updating on his four-year-old daughter Leah’s cancer fight. Last June, Leah was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare cancer right around the time her father was cut from the Cincinnati Bengals’ roster. As soon as the team discovered Leah had the stage 4 disease they re-signed him to their practice squad so he can help pay for the little girl’s treatments. Once the public learned of Leah’s illness, her father’s jersey sales went through the roof, where the proceeds were donated to pediatric cancer research. Still has since been added to the Bengals active roster. The defensive tackle has been giving supporters updates on Instagram about Leah’s health status, since her diagnosis became public.
Since then, she’s been making regular trips to the hospital for treatment after she went for surgery in September. Now, it seems Leah is still battling cancer. Still made the announcement on Instgram after he and Leah went to the hospital for a an update on her condition. Still posted in the caption:
I wanted to hear so bad that my daughter’s cancer was gone and when I didn’t it 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
Prayers go out to Devon and Leah.
