Still’s daughter Leah is suffering from stage-4 pediatric cancer. On Thursday, Leah had successful surgery at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia and the Eagles magnificently sent Leah this gift basket Still posted on his Instagram account Friday:


The current Cincinnati Bengals lineman wrote, “Thanks to Chip Kelly and the Eagles for sending these surprise gifts and flowers to my daughter.”

Still, a former Penn State defensive lineman and Camden, NJ native, also posted this touching video on Instagram before his daughter began surgery:

“Just to clear up some rumors…my daughter is NOT cancer free,” Still posted on Instagram following the surgery on Thursday. “Today was a big step towards that but still a long road ahead. She has stage 4 which means the cancer spread to her bone marrow which we hope will be removed with her next couple of treatments.”

Earlier in the season, the Bengals announced all Still jersey proceeds will go towards fighting pediatric cancer. Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints bought 100 jerseys.

Of course, we wish Leah and Devon the best.
