Leah Still’s journey to recovery captured the hearts of those in Cincinnati and beyond.

Her dad, Devon Still, was playing for the Cincinnati Bengals when they got the news in June of 2014 that she had neuroblastoma stage 4 cancer.

She was given a 50-50 chance of survival.

That year, Devon Still was cut from the active roster, but he was signed to the practice squad so he could focus on Leah. The Bengals then raised more than $1 million for cancer research at Children’s Hospital with sales from Devon Still’s No. 75 jersey.

Since Leah’s diagnosis, Still has kept us informed on her progress via social media.

After many hardships and setbacks, in March 2015, Leah found out she was cancer-free.

Nearly three years later, Devon Still shared another important update about the now 8-year-old Leah’s condition.

On Wednesday, he tweeted that not long ago, doctors found something that concerned them on Leah’s scans.

He said they’ve waited two months for the results.

On Thursday, the results came in: She’s still cancer-free.

“Last night I went to bed with a heavy heart not knowing what today had in store. But when I woke up to the outpouring of support it gave me a sense of calmness. As you can see in the picture, the prayers worked! Thank you everyone!” he tweeted.
