A book is coming soon from Leah and Devon Still about the 4-year-old's battle with rare pediatric cancer.

Pre-orders are expected to be available later this year for "I Am Leah Strong."

Tiffany M. Shepherd of the Carlos Dunlap Foundation  is helping Leah and her father, a Cincinnati Bengals defensive end, complete the book.

"After having numerous families contact me for advice on how to deal with fighting pediatric cancer and seeing the amount of kids that follow Leah's story, Leah and I decided to write a children's book," read an Instagram post by Still.

A portion of the book's proceeds will go towards pediatric cancer, says Still. The book is available for pre-order at IamLeahStrong.com.

Leah's battle with cancer has touched millions across the country. One of the highlights of the 2014-15 football season was when Leah watched her dad play against the Browns. Then she took to the field as the Bengals presented a $1.3 million check in her name to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. 

The money represented the sales of her father's jersey, which is the eleventh best-selling jersey in NFL history.

Her plight even prompted the Bengals and Browns to put their rivalry aside as Brown Quarterback Brian Hoyer chatted on-field with Still before offering him a hug.
