Heartwrenching update on NFL star’s young daughter’s battle with cancer

Heartwrenching update on NFL star’s young daughter’s battle with cancer

dvnstldghtrSome of us have been following the story of Leah Still, the daughter of Cincinnati Bengals player Devon Still. Doctors found a tumor in her abdomen, which turned out to be Neuroblastoma stage 4 cancer. After removing the tumor, the tiny girl underwent chemotherapy and began healing. However returning to the hospital for a routine checkup, Devon discovered sad news – the cancer was still there.

Q Political posted Devon’s message on Instagram,

I wanted to hear so bad that my daughter’s cancer was gone and when I didn’t it hurt me bad. I couldn’t even bring myself to tell my family the results without breaking down.

I honestly just wanted to shut down from every one. But I understand that blessing don’t happen when I want them to, they happen when they’re suppose to. So we are going to keep faith and keep fighting no matter what. #LeahStrong

Devon shaved his head bald because Leah’s was, and said he won’t regrow his hair until hers grows back. We’re all praying for Leah to pull through.  Watch the heartwrenching video below of this amazingly strong little girl.
