Leah Still, the 5-year-old daughter of Cincinnati Bengals tackle Devon Still, met Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James back in February.
She even got to high-five the Cavs forward, and in the words of her father, the exchange took her LeBron fandom “to another level.”
Flash-forward to June, and James is getting ready to compete in his fifth straight NBA Finals, this time against Stephen Curry and the Warriors. He's certainly received plenty of well-wishes throughout the whole season and playoffs, but none may be more special than the ones he received from Leah herself.
Leah recently saw her one-year anniversary since being diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma.
Leah continues to fight, and it was recently announced that she and Devon will be honored with the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at this year's ESPYS.
