Devon Still’s daughter is coming home.
The Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle revealed in a sweet Instagram video that his daughter Leah will be leaving the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on Monday.
Leah was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma – a cancer that develops from immature nerve cells in the body and mostly affects children under 5 – in June 2014.
Still, 25, had previously been documenting his daughter’s treatment on Instagram. In March, he shared a cute picture to announce that the doctors had told him that they didn’t see any active disease in Leah’s body.
“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,” Still wrote at the time.
However, Leah suffered a setback, forcing her to remain in the hospital until Monday.
