GOOD NEWS WATCH: Bengals Player Has Some Amazing Words for His Daughter Before Her Cancer Surgery
Here's one NFL player that everyone is rooting for.
Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still posted a heartwarming video to Instagram as he brought his cancer-stricken daughter to the hospital for surgery.
Watch the clip below:
His next post was even better, as he shared a photo and wrote: "After a 5hr 50min surgery the surgeon was able to remove ALL of her tumor and all of her lymph nodes and her right adrenal gland where it all started from...best news I've received in a long time #PrayForLeah #GodIsGood #ThanksForYourSupport."
Still then joked, "Oh how I've missed these metal cots."
In a subsequent post, he clarified that his daughter is not cancer-free following the surgery, but "today was a big step towards that." Still explained that four-year-old Leah must undergo treatments to remove bone marrow.
The Bengals made headlines by signing Still to its practice squad after releasing him, a move that allowed Still to maintain his health insurance through the costly cancer treatments.
The team is also supporting Still by raising money with the sales of #75 Devon Still jerseys.
Still, who was drafted out of Penn State in 2012, has since been signed back to the team's active roster.
More info on the jerseys is available here, with all of the proceeds going to the Cincinnati Children's Hospital and pediatric cancer care and research.
