Then on Friday, she met a special guest at one of the NBA All-Star FIT basketball clinics going on in the city: LeBron James. 


Not only did she get to meet the Cavaliers star, he gave her a high five. Still later tweeted a photo of the meeting:

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 practice squad to pay for Leah's medical bills and was eventually promoted back to the active roster.

In January, 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.
