Devon Still announces daughter Leah is cancer-free
Tuesday December 1st, 2015

Leah Still, the daughter of former Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still, is now cancer-free, her father announced on Instagram.

“Thanks for all the support and prayers,” Devon Still wrote. “Just got the phone call that her scans showed NED (no evidence of disease)! #LeahStrong #StillKickinCancersAss”​

Leah Still was diagnosed with stage-four neuroblastoma in June 2014 and was given a 50-50 chance to survive.

Leah underwent tests at the end of July which confirmed her cancer was still in remission. She was awarded her own Wheaties Cereal box in August, just one month after she was honored at the ESPY's.

​Still is currently a free-agent after being waived by the Bengals in September. The Bengals previously kept him on their practice squad to help him pay for Leah’s medical care. He was later promoted to the active roster and recorded 19 tackles in 12 games.
