Life Comes Next Moment: Devon Still’s daughter attends first NFL game, sees dad play for first time
Friday November 14th, 2014

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still posted some emotional messages to social media on Friday morning, talking about the difficulties of being away from his daughter while she is fighting stage 4 nueroblastoma.

Leah Still's fight with pediatric cancer first came to the nation's attention when the Bengals dropped her father from the active roster to the practice squad so he could spend more time with Leah and still keep his healthcare insurance.

Leah has since become a rallying point for funding cancer research, with the Bengals giving all proceeds from Still's jersey sales to the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, a number which has totaled $1.3 million so far.
