Bengals' defensive tackle Devon Still's daughter is schedule to undergo surgery Thursday.
Still posted a video on instagram before taking Leah Still to surgery with the message:
"Pre-surgery pep talk...I might be nervous and scared beyond words but I'll never let her see it...let's get this done!"
The two share a beautiful moment together in the video.
Two months ago, Devon Still announced on instagram his 4-year-old daughter has stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer.
Since making the announcement, the community has embraced Still and his story.
The Bengals officially signed Devon Still to the team's active roster on September 14.
"We think Devon is ready to rejoin our line rotation and be productive," Marvin Lewis said. "It already was stated that a big reason Devon opened on the practice squad was that he couldn't focus on football this preseason. He had to take care of his daughter. But Devon has told us he feels ready to contribute now, so it's the right move at the right time. And we've told Devon he can still be afforded the personal time he needs to attend to his daughter's care."
On September 9, the Bengals announced they would donate money from the sales of Devon Still's jersey to a good cause: Fighting pediatric cancer.
All proceeds of Still's jersey will go to benefit Cincinnati Children's Hospital and pediatric cancer care and research.
Still's jersey actually had more sales in a 24-hour period than any Bengals jersey in history
