DEVON STILL could not ask for a better gift this holiday season.
On Tuesday, he found out his daughter Leah, who was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma at age 4 last June, is cancer-free.
"Thanks for all the support and prayers!" Still wrote on Instagram. "Just got the phone call that her scans showed NED (no evidence of disease)! #LeahStrong."
Leah underwent treatment at several hospitals, including Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
The Bengals cut Still in September 2014, only to re-sign him when they found out about his daughter's disease. The move ensured she would be covered under the NFL health insurance policy for five years.
The team also raised over $1 million to fight pediatric cancer through the sale of Still's No. 75 jersey.
When the Bengals cut Devon Still before the start of this season, he took the time to praise the team that had stood by him.
"Have nothing but love for the Bengals organization and the city of Cincinnati," he wrote on Instagram. "Both helped me through one of the darkest times of my life and I am forever grateful. It's time to move forward and see what's next."
Still - who was born in Camden and played for Penn State - is currently a free agent.
He is looking to catch on with a team, but keeps busy with the Still Strong Foundation, which helps the families of children fighting pediatric cancer.
Best 0-0 coach
Warriors interim coach Luke Walton was named the Western Conference's top coach for October and November even though he's officially never won a game.
Head coach Steve Kerr, who has been out since training camp because of complications from back surgery, is still the team's coach of record, so he gets the credit for the 19-0 start.
Said Walton: "Steve's done a lot for me. It's the least I can do to add a couple wins on his total for him, with all he's done for me."
