CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Devon Still gave an emotional update on instagram about his daughter's battle with cancer.

Still announced that 4-year-old Leah's cancer is not gone yet.

"I wanted to hear so bad that my daughter's cancer was gone and when I didn't it hurt me bad. I couldn't even bring myself to tell my family the results without breaking down. I honestly just wanted to shut down from every one. But I understand that blessing don't happen when I want them to, they happen when they're suppose to. So we are going to keep faith and keep fighting no matter what.#LeahStrong #BeatCancer," Still wrote.

Leah has been battling stage 4 pediatric cancer since June.  She is being treated at Children's Hospital in Philadelphia.  

Her battle with cancer has touched millions across the country.

The Bengals partnered with in an effort to benefit Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center by selling Devon's No. 75 jersey.  They sold nearly 15,000 and made more than $1.3 million from the sales.  All the money was donated to Cincinnati Children's for pediatric cancer research.

In November, Leah watched her dad play against the Cleveland Browns and took the field as the Bengals presented the check in her name to Cincinnati Children's Hospital.
