Devon Still’s got something to celebrate: His daughter Leah received some very good news about her fight with cancer.
The Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle rejoiced on Instagram, sharing a sweet pic with his 4-year-old girl on Tuesday.
“Doctors told us they didn’t see any active disease in her body!!!” the proud dad wrote, adding: “We still have to wait for her MRI and bone biopsy results later this week. But the doctors feel very optimistic about them because of the results from today.”

But the doctors feel very optimistic about them because of the results from today. So for now we celebrate!! #LeahStrong #PrayersWork #ThankYouEveryOne #ImSoHappyIFeelNumb #BeatCancer #NotCancerFreeYetButWeOnTheWayThere
Leah was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma in June 2014.
Still was cut from the Bengals later that year after he skipped practices to be with his little girl, but the football team ultimately decided to re-sign him to the practice squad so he could pay for her treatments.
The 25-year-old football player told PEOPLE in November that he appreciated the outpouring of support he received after his story became public.
“People have been sending letters and messages on social media about their kids and how they went through similar situations,” he said.
“It definitely gives me a positive outlook,” Still added. “A lot of them were from parents of survivors. Hearing their stories helped me have faith that my daughter has a chance to beat this disease.”
