Leah Still to Be Discharged on Tuesday


After a lengthy battle with cancer, Devon Still revealed late Monday that his daughter Leah has won.

The NFL defensive lineman posted the amazing news on Twitter that Leah is being released from the hospital on Tuesday, declaring that his 5-year-old has "beat cancer."



The news comes just days after LeBron James took the time to visit Leah, as the NBA star told his Instagram followers that she'd just underwent her last treatment session.




Devon also posted a photo from the final treatment, which happened on Friday.




Leah was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer in 2014, when she was just 4 years old. Over the summer, she won the Jimmy V. Perseverance Award at ESPN's ESPY Awards. Devon accepted the award on his daughter's behalf and delivered one of the more emotional speeches the show has seen. LeBron was one of the presenters of that award in July.


The Bengals waived Devon Still in September, but the 26-year-old was signed by the Houston Texans to a future contract earlier this month.
