Leah Still, the self-proclaimed Selfie Queen, needs your thoughts and prayers. An update about the 4-year-old’s health condition was recently shared by her father, Devon Still, and the news isn’t good.


“I wanted to hear so bad that my daughter’s cancer was gone and when I didn’t it hurt me bad,” wrote Devon on his Instagram page earlier this week. “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,” shared Still.

Although hurting, the NFL star managed to share a bit of optimism telling fans, “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.” Devon also shared a touching poster that read: “Never give up or lose faith in something that you know God has placed in your life. Be patient and remember there is a time for everything.”

Still revealed his daughter’s battle with cancer last summer after the Cincinnati ‘Bengals’ placed him on the practice team so he could spend more time with Leah. Devon returned to the field just months after his daughter underwent surgery that doctors believed would remove all of the cancer. Leah continues to battle with neuroblastoma.
