We’ve heard SO many disgusting stories about pro athletes lately…in particular NFL players so I thought it would be cool to share one that is absolutely heart warming!
Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still had some encouraging words for his daughter before she underwent cancer surgery Thursday.
Still’s 4-year-old daughter Leah was diagnosed with cancer in June. After he originally retired to spend time with her, the Bengals re-signed Still to the practice squad so he could afford her medical treatments. The Bengals’ pro shop sold thousands of Still’s jerseys for $100 apiece to support pediatric cancer research and the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
Before Leah’s surgery, her father continued to show his utmost support with a heartwarming video. For the caption, Still wrote, “Pre-surgery pep talk…I might be nervous and scared beyond words but I’ll never let her see it…let’s get this done!”
