Some things are more important than football, and Leah Still is doing something that’s much harder than anything that can be done on a football field.

Former Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still announced on Instagram that his daughter Leah is cancer-free.

Thanks for all the support and prayers! Just got the phone call that her scans showed NED (no evidence of disease)! #LeahStrong #StillKickinCancersAss

Leah Still, 5, was diagnosed with cancer in June 2014 and given a 50-50 chance to live.

The Bengals kept Still on their practice squad after cutting him last year, according to SI.com, and he eventually made the active roster and appeared in 12 games.

Still again was cut in September and is currently a free agent, but he’ll take Leah kicking cancer over signing with a team any day.
