Devon Still, Bengals Launch Initiative To Sack Pediatric Cancer

Former defensive tackle Devon Still revealed his daughter, Leah, has pediatric cancer in June, and the Penn State family has kept them in its thoughts ever since. Now, the Cincinnati Bengals have joined the fight.

The Bengals announced a Pldgit campaign called Help the Bengals Sack Cancer in support of their defensive tackle’s daughter. Those who want to help the cause can either make a one-time donation or pledge to donate a certain amount every time the Bengals record a sack this season. The proceeds will go to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

This is what Still wrote on the donation page:

Two months ago I found out my daughter has neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer. Kids always look up to their parents, but in just a matter of a week that all reversed for me. I can honestly say I truly look up to my daughter now. In the four years of life she has had, she has been through way more than I have in 24. Her courage, strength, and high spirits through it all is nothing short of inspirational.

So I am dedicating my season to her and inspiring others like she has inspired me. Please join our team by pledging to donate for every sack our defense has this season. You’ll receive weekly updates with the amount of your donation based on our performance. Proceeds benefit Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and will have all them kids sayin’ “Who Dey!”

Still was a beast during his Penn State days, recording a total of 113 tackles and picking up consensus All-American honors in 2011. PennLive recently did a very in-depth feature on the Still family if you want to know more.

Let’s do our thing, Penn Staters. Donate here.
