Devon Still’s 5-Year-OId Daughter Leah Has Beaten Cancer
NFL star Devon Still announced on Tuesday that his 5-year-old daughter Leah has beaten cancer. The Houston Texans defensive tackle said Leah will check out of the hospital today.
“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,” he wrote in the emotional tweet. “She really beat cancer! Beyond thankful for all the support y’all showed us.”
Leah was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a cancer that affects the nerve cells, in June of 2014 and given a 50 percent chance to live. Since March 2015, after a successful surgery to remove the tumor, she has been in remission.
So happy for them! Here’s to a long life for Leah.
