New England Patriots Honor Devon and Leah Still
The New England Patriots used a national Sunday night audience to show support for Devon Still and his daughter, Leah, during last night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Still’s daughter has been in a well-documented battle against cancer. Last week, Still posted on Instagram that a surgery successfully removed the 4-year old’s cancerous tumor.
The Patriots, who steamrolled Still’s Bengals 43-17, honored Still in multiple ways.
The team’s cheerleaders sported Still’s jersey, of which proceeds will be donated to the Cincinnati Children Hospital and pediatric cancer research.
The Patriots also reported that team owner Robert Craft would donate $25,000 in Leah Still’s name.

A video tribute to Leah was displayed on Gillette Stadium’s big screen scoreboard.
NBC cameras captured a teary Still, who displayed the words “Leah Strong” as a tribute, absorbing the thoughtful actions.
Before the game, Still posted this to his Instagram account.
It was a touching tribute the Penn Stater and his family. We’re all rooting for you here in State College, Leah!
