Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still and his four-year-old daughter Leah, who is battling pediatric cancer, were featured on Monday's The Today Show.
Leah was recently featured in a "Truly Brave" music video led by The Today Show anchor Hoda Kotb, which combines Sara Bareilles singing "Brave" and Cyndi Lauper singing "True Colors."
The music video is part of a campaign launched by Kotb to raise money for pediatric cancer research.
For the premiere of the music video, Still rented out a movie theater for Leah, her family and friends on the night before she underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor.
"She's a fighter," Still said of his daughter. "You always expect your child to look up to you but, honestly, since June 2 I've really been looking up to my daughter."
Leah is not cancer-free yet and will undergo more chemotherapy and radiation in an effort to completely eradicate the cancer.
