Devon Still's daughter receives gifts in hospital from Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles and head coach Chip Kelly sent gifts and flowers to Leah Still, the daughter of Cincinnati Bengals tackle Devon Still, as she recovers in the hospital from having a cancerous tumor removed Thursday.
Four-year-old Leah, who has stage-four pediatric cancer, had a nearly six-hour surgery on Thursday to remove the tumor and all her lymph nodes where her cancer originated.
She is not cancer free yet, and will undergo more chemotherapy and radiation in an effort to completely eradicate it.
Devon Still posted a photo to his Instagram on Friday with the caption, "Thanks to Chip Kelly and the Eagles for sending these surprise gifts and flowers to my daughter."
The Bengals signed Still, a 2012 second-round pick, to their practice squad in early September so that Leah could continue to receive health insurance. They then promoted Still to the active roster before the team's Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Cincinnati is also selling Devon Still No. 75 jerseys and donating all proceeds to fight pediatric cancer.
