LeBron James sends Leah Still motivational message on Instagram

Saturday January 9th, 2016

LeBron James posted a photo to Instagram, where he shared good news that Leah Still's latest cancer treatment session was a success.

Continue to inspire me as well as so many others,” James wrote. “Uncle LeBron loves you so much and we're going to play Barbie house/tea party all together very soon. U, Daddy, Zhuri and Uncle LeBron.”

Friday's treatment was slated to be Still's last, according to a post by her father Devon Still, who signed a futures contract with the Houston Texans on Wednesday.​

Still visited James before Wednesday night's game and witnessed the Cavaliers defeat the Washington Wizards 121–115.

Leah Still was diagnosed with stage-four neuroblastoma in June 2014 and was given a 50-50 chance to survive.

Leah underwent tests at the end of July which confirmed her cancer was still in remission. She was awarded her own Wheaties Cereal box in August, just one month after she was honored at the ESPY's.
