Leah Still received a wonderful opportunity this week: the chance to walk the runway at New York Fashion Week with her father, Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still, watching.
Wearing a puffy vest over a plaid shirt, the 4-year-old Leah owned the runway with Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" blaring overhead, got to meet Hoda Kotb from the Today Show and generally just awed everyone in attendance.

Still and Leah have drawn national attention during Leah's battle with stage-4 pediatric cancer. Still had been cut from the Bengals' roster, but was re-signed to the Bengals' practice squad and eventually promoted back up to the active roster.
Last month, the pair announced they had co-written a book titled I Am Leah Strong with hopes of inspiring children dealing with similar situations. The book will be released later this month.
