Throughout the last year and a half, NFL fans everywhere have been attached to the story of Leah and Devon Still. Devon Still was picked by the Bengals in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft, but the lineman never really caught on with the team that drafted him and he was cut after two seasons.
However, the Bengals later signed Still back onto their practice squad, in part to help him pay for chemo treatment for his daughter Leah, who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2014.
Since then, Leah Still has become a minor celebrity, as fans have flocked to help her in her brave fight against cancer and her father’s continued support of her along the way.
Leah received the Jimmy V ESPY Award for her courage back in July last year, and she even got her own Wheaties box. Meanwhile, Devon Still has tried to keep his NFL hopes alive and he caught on with the Texans ahead of their playoff appearance after being cut by Cincinnati in September.
Well finally, after 19 months of bravely battling the disease, Devon Still announced on Twitter on Monday that Leah had finally beaten cancer once and for all.
