Devon and Leah Still discuss Leah’s battle with cancer on GMA

Friday January 15th, 2016

Houston Texans defensive tackle Devon Still and his daughter Leah appeared on Good Morning America on Friday to discuss Leah’s fight against cancer.

Leah received her final treatment on Monday and has officially beaten the disease, Still announced on Twitter this week.

In the GMA interview with Robin Roberts, Leah said she was feeling “really good” and credited her strength to her father.

Leah was diagnosed with stage four pediatric cancer in 2014 at the age of four. She was given a 50–50 chance to survive.

“I'm just thankful,” Still said in the interview. “It was definitely a long road traveled. We definitely feel blessed and thankful that we have the doctors and people around us to help us through this battle.”

Leah said she was excited to watch her dad, who signed a futures contract with the Texans for the 2016 season, play football again. She also added that she would like to be a cheerleader at Penn State, where Still played college football.
