Former Bengal Devon Still and his family on Wednesday celebrated daughter Leah being five years cancer free with several posts on social media.
Leah was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma in 2014 when she was 4 years old and given a 50/50 chance of survival. She went into remission in March, 2015.
While he was a member of the Bengals, Still raised awareness of his daughter’s fight by appearing on numerous TV and radio shows.
A second-round pick by the Bengals in 2012, Still played three seasons in Cincinnati. He retired from the NFL in 2017.
Devon and Leah created the Still Strong Foundation in 2015 to give grants to families affected by childhood cancers.
