Devon Still’s little girl isn’t just surviving, she’s thriving.
Five-year-old Leah Still – who was discharged from the hospital for the final time last month after beating the Stage-4 neuroblastoma she was first diagnosed with in June 2014 – presented the AP Comeback Player of the Year Award at Saturday night’s NFL honors, onstage with her father.
Before that, Leah also walked the red carpet, charming onlookers and the cameras.
Eric Berry, the award’s winner, shared something in common with Leah, having won his own fight against Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Presenting him the award Saturday, daddy and daughter reflected on their own journey: “Throughout Leah’s 20-month battle with cancer, we endured so many ups and downs,” Devon said. “Together we learned a lot about what it takes to comeback.”
“Sometimes it takes all your hair,” Leah said.

“If you can kick cancer,” Devon, 26, continued, “you can do anything – ain’t that right, [Leah]?”
She answered with a smile, “Yes daddy. Roll the tape!”
