Leah Still’s cancer remains in remission
Wednesday July 29th, 2015

After a long off-season of accompanying his daughter Leah to her cancer treatments, Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still has to report to training camp. Still posted a video on Instagram Wednesday of the moment he said goodbye to Leah before leaving for camp. 

Leah got good news on Tuesday, when doctors told her that her cancer remains in remission. The five-year-old had been battling stage-4 neuroblastoma. Doctors first declared the disease in remission in March but spent the spring and summer undergoing procedures to ensure the cancer would not return. 

Leah was honored at the ESPYs earlier this month with the Jimmy V Perseverance Award but was not cleared by her doctors to travel to Los Angeles for the ceremony. Instead, her father accepted the award and Leah appeared in a pre-recorded video shown in the theater.
