Good news for anyone who has been following Cincinnati Bengals star Devon Still’s daughter’s battle with cancer or believers in humanity in general.
Still took to his Instagram account yesterday to give fans an update and retrospective on the best and worst days of his life.
“June 2, 2014 and March 25, 2015 are days I will remember for the rest of my life,” he began. “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,” the defensive tackle wrote Wednesday.
“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! After 296 days of day dreaming about what it would feel like to hear the doctors say my daughter is in remission, I finally know the feeling. Funny thing is there is really no way of describing it because I never knew this feeling existed. 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.”
He went on to thank doctors, hospital staff, family, friends and fans for their prayers and support.
“Thank you to everyone who has sent a letter to give Leah and our family motivation to keep fighting, a toy that helped Leah get through her days in the hospital, and more importantly a prayer that helped God hear our cries for healing.”
