In an update shared to Instagram on Tuesday, Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still shared that his daughter Leah’s cancer was still in remission.
Earlier in the day, Still shared a photo of five-year-old Leah awaiting tests to see if her stage-4 neuroblastoma remained in remission. Still first announced on March 25 that the cancer had went into remission.
“Idky but I always get a little nervous on these days,” Still wrote in his first Instagram post on Tuesday. “Big day of testing today to see if the cancer is still in remission so she wanted to dress up pretty because if you look good you feel good and if you feel good you get good results..if that theory is right then I have nothing to worry about because she looks beautiful today #ShoutOutToHerStylist #OhThatsMe #LeahStrong”
Later, Still shared a brief screenshot of an email from doctors saying the cancer was indeed still in remission.
“Just the email I needed heading into camp..the tests from today came back negative #LeahStrong,” Still wrote.
Still will report to Bengals training camp this week fighting for a spot on the team’s 53-man roster. Cincinnati’s training camp begins Friday.
