As recently as July, Still updated the status of his daughter saying she remained cancer free. This is a battle Devon and Leah have been publicly battling for more than two full football seasons -- Still has been cut by the Bengals and re-signed and cut again.
On Monday night he provided an update on his daughter, proclaiming she "beat cancer."
It's crazy to sit here in the hospital know that after leah gets discharged tomorrow we are really done with this chapter in our lives— Devon Still (@Dev_Still71) January 12, 2016
She really beat cancer! Beyond thankful for all the support y'all showed us— Devon Still (@Dev_Still71) January 12, 2016
Things in sports and life don't always come around with a happy ending.
For a story the world's been watching for a while now -- and a battle the Stills have been fighting for several years -- it's wonderful to know little Leah gets to head home victorious over a horrible enemy.
