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. 4d6e204bfb7d509adde3bf86cb41e962_crop_north

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.
