Bengals' Devon Still appeared on The Ellen Show and got an amazing gift

Friday October 17th, 2014

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday to talk about his daughter Leah's fight with cancer. While he was there, the host surprised him with a $10,000 donation to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where his daughter has been receiving treatment.

Four-year-old Leah was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma over the summer, and Still was placed on the Bengals practice squad so that he could spend more time with his daughter while still keeping full health insurance.

Several NFL teams have reached out to show support to the Still family during their fight, and earlier this week both the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Flyers joined in the fight.
