Devon Still Says Daughter Leah Hit a 'Pretty Serious Complication'

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle, Devon Still, is taking to Instagram to seek prayers for his daughter Leah.

In a recent Instagram post, the NFL player stated. "We hit a pretty serious complication from the stem cell transplant called VOD"

At the age of 4 Leah had been diagnosed with cancer and reportedly has suffered a set back in her fight. Ever since her diagnosis, Still has been documenting her treatment and major milestones on the social media platform.

Although the team cut Still, they eventually brought him back to the practice squad so that he could help take care of his daughter and retain health insurance. The Bengals also gave back all proceeds of Still's jersey to pediatric cancer research, totaling over $1 million dollars.

Devon Still pleads for prayers on Instagram for cancer-stricken daughter
I need some prayers sent up for Leah tonight! We hit a pretty serious complication from the stem cell transplant called VOD. They caught it early so hopefully it gives the doctors a better chance of stopping it from getting aggressive. As you can imagine our minds are all over the place but we're going to try and remain positive! #LeahStrong #WaitingForTheDayEverythingReturnsToNormal
Rocking hair was cool but it was time for us to go back to the baldy! I know she wanted nothing more but to grow her long hair back but we will take a clean bill of health over hair any day! Hopefully this will be the last treatment she ever has that will make her hair fall out #LeahStrong

After days of high dosage chemo, today was the big day. She just got her stems cells back. Now it's time to sit back and watch God work! 🙏🏽 #LeahStrong
I could go on and on about how much my daughter means to me but I think it's pretty apparent by now. I could write a book under this pic about how much it hurts to see my daughter getting chemo on her birthday but I'm not. Today I'm just going to be thankful. Thankful that God has blessed me with 5 years with this amazing little girl that I can proudly say is my daughter. Of course this is not where we want to be right now but we just look at it as this is only one birthday out of the many she has coming in the future. HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY LEAH!!! #LeahStrong #SpeakItIntoExsistence
