Cincinnati Reds mascots read Leah Still's children's book
The Cincinnati Reds supported Leah Still and her father, Devon, by having their mascots show off the pair's new children's book.
Devon and Leah co-wrote the book, titled I Am Leah Strong, which was released at the end of February. The book was written to help other kids who are battling cancer or in similar situations. Portions of the proceeds go toward pediatric cancer organizations.
Leah was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma on June 2 and was given a 50/50 chance to survive. Last week, Devon announced that the four-year-old's cancer is in remission.
Devon Still took time away from the Bengals at the beginning of the 2014 season, but the team added him to the practice squad so that he could keep his health insurance and help pay for Leah's treatments. The team began selling replicas of Still's No. 75 jersey and donating the proceeds to pediatric cancer research.
