Devon Still's Cancer-Free Daughter Leah Dances Up a Storm at Parent's Wedding

Devon Still, a well-known dad and Houston Texans player, kicked off Father's Day early this year with a visit to the maternity ward at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. At the local hospital, Devon welcomed fellow dads into the fatherhood club by sharing Dove Men+Care "Dad Care Packages."

This marks the official launch of the Dove Men+Care "Dad Care Package" program that provides new dads with some of the tools they need to be a hero from the very beginning of their fatherhood journey, upon arrival of their newborn.

The grooming kits include a congratulatory card with some advice from other real dads, a burp cloth to care for baby right away and Dove Men+Care personal care products. For the second year in a row, the brand is partnering with hospitals across the country to share the packs and, beginning on Father's Day, will reach 15,000 new dads this year.

Still is excited to work with Dove Men+Care this Father's Day to celebrate dads, like him, who understand that their real strength comes from the care they show their children. He demonstrated that he's a hero to his 5-year-old daughter Leah throughout her battle with cancer, and continues to do so now that she is in remission.

This week, the brand launched a new short film that highlights some of the special moments that make real dads heroes in the eyes of their children:

Just another reason to love Devon and Leah.
