Devon Still reached out on social media Friday night to ask for people to pray for his daughter Leah, who hit a complication from a stem cell transplant.

Leah was diagnosed with cancer last year but has undergone treatments for it. The news looked positive in March when Still tweeted that a scan showed his daughter no longer had any active disease.

A few months later, not everything is going great. Here is what Still wrote on Instagram:

“I need some prayers sent up for Leah tonight! We hit a pretty serious complication from the stem cell transplant called VOD. They caught it early so hopefully it gives the doctors a better chance of stopping it from getting aggressive. As you can imagine our minds are all over the place but we’re going to try and remain positive!”

VOD is an issue where the small veins in the liver are obstructed, and it is the result of high doses of chemotherapy or a bone marrow transplant.

We are sending our positive thoughts to the Still family and hope Leah will recover.
