After an 18 month long battle, NFL star Devon Still couldn’t have been happier to share the news that his 5 year old daughter, Leah Still, had beaten cancer! Leah just celebrated her last treatment with a visit from none other than her favourite NBA player LeBron James, and now she gets to celebrate being cancer free!
Diagnosed in June 2014 with stage IV neuroblastoma, Leah was given only a 50% chance of survival by doctors. But with her dad documenting her battle on social media, Leah gained a huge outpouring of support from fans and players alike, even dubbing her ‘Leah Strong’.
