LeBron James, Devon Still, and others say goodbye to Lauren Hill

Earlier this morning, the sports world learned the tragic news that Lauren Hill had died after a long fight with an inoperable brain tumor.

One of Hill’s biggest supporters throughout her battle was Cleveland Cavaliers’ star LeBron James.

James took to twitter to say goodbye to Hill, until they ‘officially’ meet again.

Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still, who’s daughter Leah’s battle with cancer was closely connected with Hill’s, took to Instagram for a heartfelt goodbye.

"When you die it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you leave." Lauren never let this terrible disease define her. She didn't let it control whether she lived out her dream of playing college ball and she fought to live pass what doctors originally told her she would. Lauren left her mark on this world by showing people what it really meant to NEVER GIVE UP. So would I say she lost her battle with cancer? Hell no! Because of her fight and selfless act of using her fight to raise an incredible amount of money and awareness, doctors will one day find a cure for DIPG! It hurt like hell seeing the news this morning and i'm not even sure how I'm going to tell my daughter. In the past two weeks, two kids that I have met and developed relationships with have passed from cancer smh something's got to give its not right #For22 #LaurenStrong
