Devon Still took ailing daughter Leah to Disney World for Christmas (photos)


With the Cincinnati Bengals not playing until Monday night, Devon Still was afforded some extra time away from the team this week and took advantage of it by taking is four-year-old daughter Leah to Disney World.

Leah of course is battling Stage 4 neuroblastoma and has become an inspirational figure to millions as she has bravely waged her courageous battle with dignity and grace.

Leah dressed up as Elsa from “Frozen” for his visit to the Magic Kingdom and from the looks of photos posted by Still to his Twitter account, she was enjoying herself immensely.

Still wrote in a post made to Sqor also published on Twitter: “Thank you to ESPN and Disney World (aka Santa Claus) for making one of my daughters Christmas wishes come true!”

Leah even got the chance to sit in the pilot’s seat in the plane the Stills took to Orlando.

Still has spent the past several months sharing details of Leah’s battle, both the ups as well as the downs, writing about how heartbreaking it has been to pursue his NFL career while his ailing daughter is so far away receiving treatment. Leah did manage to make it to a Bengals game earlier this season — the first time she has seen her father play football — something Still referred to as being “like a roller coaster of emotions.”
