The best news of the week comes from Devon Still who told fans that his daughter’s cancer is officially in remission on Wednesday. The NFL star shared his excitement and plans to celebrate with Instagram subscribers.
“June 2, 2014 and March 25, 2015 are days I will remember for the rest of my life,” shared Devon along with a picture of Leah giving the camera a fist bump. “As everyone probably knows, June 2nd was the day doctors walked into the waiting room to tell me my daughter had cancer. It was the most devastating day of my life. March 25th , however, is feeling like the best day of my life. Today we received news from Leah’s oncologist that her cancer, stage four neuroblastoma, is officially in REMISSION!”
Still went on to tell fans that his happiness was indescribable. “When I look at my daughter all I can do is smile and hug her. It was not easy but every day, and every treatment Leah fought like hell and kicked cancers butt! I’m so proud and blessed to call her my daughter. She has made an impact on me and on the world, at the age of four, that I can only wish to make in a lifetime.”
The Cincinnati ‘Bengals’ player thanked everyone who posted loving messages online and said “a prayer that helped God hear our cries for healing” during Leah’s fight. Devon also thanked Leah’s doctors for “putting together the best plan of action.”
Leah is Devon Still’s only child. She will celebrate her fifth birthday next month.
