We’ve got an update on Leah Still, the daughter of Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still and her battle with cancer. It’s a good one, so get ready to do your praise dance inside…
A while back, we brought you news about Leah Still’s battle with neuroblastoma, a rare pediatric cancer.
The four-year-old was diagnosed with the disease back in June 2014 and she made headlines after her dad, Devon Still, was cut then was re-signed to the Bengals’ practice squad to help pay for her cancer treatments. God stepped in and showed out.
Two months ago, we brought you a report about Leah’s battle, and it was not great. The cancer was still in her body, but definitely not her spirit.
Yesterday, little Leah and her dad spoke to doctors about her latest round of test, and a miraculous ocassion occured. The docs said they see no cancerous activity in her body. Wonderful news!
Now…this does not mean that she is officially cancer-free, but it does mean the doctors do not see “active disease” in her body. Look at God!
Devon celebrated the good report on Instagram saying,
“That moment you get the best news you’ve ever received and don’t know what to do so you just flex!! We got Leah’s MIBG Scans back tonight and the doctors told us they didn’t see any active disease in her body!!! We still have to wait for her MRI and bone biopsy results later this week. But the doctors feel very optimistic about them because of the results from today. So for now we celebrate!! #LeahStrong #PrayersWork #ThankYouEveryOne #ImSoHappyIFeelNumb #BeatCancer #NotCancerFreeYetButWeOnTheWayThere”
Won’t He do it!
