Devon Still of the Bengals and his daughter have won a prestigious award

Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still has been an amazing father during this sad fight with cancer for his beautiful young daughter Leah.  That is why ESPN will award Still and his daughter Leah with the Jimmy B Perseverance Award on July 15th at the ESPY’s, according to ESPN’s release.

While Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle, Devon Still, may once have been best known for his work on the field, he is now recognized for something more. For his unwavering strength, determination and devotion to his daughter, Leah, in her fight against cancer and in the face of a continuing serious personal struggle, Devon and his daughter will be honored with the Jimmy V Perseverance Award on July 15 at The 2015 ESPYS presented by Capital One.

This is touching story and I hope people continue to pray for the little fighter Leah.
