Philadelphia Flyers Support Devon and Leah Still

Another professional sports team has stepped up to support Devon and Leah Still.

The Philadelphia Flyers used their yearly Hockey Fights Cancer Night this past Tuesday to support Leah, Still’s four year-old daughter fighting cancer. The Flyers handed out towels with a blank namespace to inscribe the name of a close one battling cancer.

Still was born in Camden, New Jersey, just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia.

About a week ago, on Sunday night football, the New England Patriots honored Still and his daughter with a video montage, and dressed their cheerleaders in Still’s jersey. Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft also donated $25,000 to Cincinnati Children’s Medical Center. New Orleans Saints’ head coach Sean Payton bought 100 of Still’s jerseys.

Maybe most ambitiously, when the Cincinnati Bengals host the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 6, the Bengals plan to present a check to the Cincinnati Children’s Medical Center exceeding a million dollars, much of that money coming from Still’s jersey sales.

Locally, the Family Clothesline and McLanahan’s began selling Still-related shirts to further benefit the former Nittany Lion lineman.

The current Cincinnati Bengal revealed three weeks ago on Instagram that surgery had successfully removed Leah’s cancerous tumor, but months of treatment remain until she’s deemed cancer free.
