Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still took to Instagram on Tuesday to relay what he called “the best news [he’s] ever received.”
Still’s young daughter, Leah, has been battling pediatric cancer. Based on her latest MIBG scans, Still says Leah does not have any active disease in her body, according to the Instagram post:
A campaign to buy Still’s jersey this past season skyrocketed with profits up to $1.25 million, which were all donated to pediatric cancer treatment research.
The Stills haven’t been facing the ordeal alone — the NFL and the player’s fan base have been supportive since the news of Leah’s illness. Tuesday’s news ought to brighten more than just her family’s day.
