Thank you for sending me well wishes…i appreciate it friends!! Today I wanted to turn the spot light on Leah still.
Whenever I read an update on Devon Still and his daughter, four year-old daughter, Leah, I become so emotional!! Leah seems like such a strong and sweet little girl! Please pray for her and her father and family.
To be four years-old and experiencing something as devastating as cancer with the best smile in the world is just a testimony to how big this little girl’s future is!!
If you don’t know about their story, here’s some more background info:
In June, Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still learned his four-year-old daughter, Leah, had stage four pediatric cancer. Still missed offseason workouts to be with her, shaved his head in solidarity, and filled his Instagram with pictures of Leah and updates on her treatment.
One thing i heard her father say about her is that (i am paraphrasing), she is so much stronger than he is because of the way in which she is dealing with the cancer.
What a wonderful thing the NFL and other social media outlets are doing by bringing awareness to pancreatic cancer, raising money and allowing Devon to be available to her daughter, by giving him an opportunity to have health insurance to cover her treatments. There are too many individuals that cannot afford to access treatment for their children. More reason to have health insurance for everyone but that’s another blog post.
The love between Devon and his daughter is just palpable…so beautiful!!
