Lauren Hill gave Bengals' Devon Still the jersey from her first college basketball game

Lauren Hill has received an outpouring of support over the past few months as she realized her dream of playing college basketball, despite her inoperable brain tumor.

One of Hill's biggest supporters has been Devon Still of the Cincinnati Bengals, who's young daughter Leah has been battling cancer herself.

Still surprised Hill at practice in October and brought her a Bengals jersey, then paid tribute to her with his eye black during a game.

On Thursday, Hill returned the favor by surprising Still with the jersey from her first -- and quite possibly her only -- college basketball game.

Hill visited Still at Bengals practice to deliver a signed jersey from her amazing appearance for Mount St. Joseph University on Nov. 2.

The jersey, personalized for Still, was inscribed with "Forever Lauren and Leah strong, Never give up! Lauren Hill #22."

What a perfect gift between athletes who have shown tremendous support for each other through these trying times.
