Leah Still Is Almost Cancer Free
Remember Devon Still’s adorable daughter Leah who’s battling cancer? Well the adorable 4-year-old recently got some exciting news.
Leah Still received some encouraging news in her battle with a rare pediatric cancer Tuesday.
Cincinnati Bengals unrestricted free agent Devon Still, 4-year-old Leah’s father, posted on Instagram on Tuesday night that doctors informed his family that they didn’t “see any active disease in her body,” meaning the little girl’s bout with pediatric cancer could soon be coming to the positive resolution so many have been hoping for.
“We still have to wait for her MRI and bone biopsy results later this week,” Still also wrote in the caption of a picture showing him and Leah flexing their muscles.
Leah was diagnosed last June with Stage 4 neuroblastoma. Since then, she has undergone surgeries to remove a cancerous tumor from her stomach, as well as other rounds of treatments that included chemotherapy and stem-cell treatments.
While doctors aren’t yet sure if all of the cancer is gone from Leah’s body, her father reports that they “feel very optimistic” because of the results the Stills received Tuesday. They’ll find out later this week whether the cancer has fully left her. Previously, they estimated her chance at survival at 50-50.
Congrats little Leah! We’re rooting for you!
