North Face sends Devon, Leah Still special 'Leah Strong' jackets

Monday December 8th, 2014

Devon Still and his daughter Leah were both sent jackets by The North Face and president Todd Spaletto, a very nice gesture by the company. Even cooler? The jackets are custom embroidered with the words "Leah Strong" on Devon's jacket and "Still Strong" on Leah's.

Four-year-old Leah has captured the hearts of the NFL since the beginning of the season when the news broke about her diagnosis with stage 4 neuroblastoma. After having surgery to remove the cancerous tumor and lymph nodes at the end of September she received care packages from multiple NFL teams

Lauren Hill gave the jersey from her first college game to Devon Still

Sales of Still's jersey have raised over $1 million and Still has become an outspoken proponent of pediatric cancer research. In October, Ellen DeGeneres surprised him with a $10,000 donation to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where Leah has been receiving treatment. 

Still and DeGeneres have teamed up to auction off a signed Bengals' No. 75 Still jersey signed by a host of celebrities, including Taylor Swift, President Bill Clinton, One Direction and Jamie Foxx.
