Leah Still isn’t letting cancer slow her down. The daughter of Cincinnati Bengals player Devon Still strutted her stuff for Fashion Week with her proud dad cheering in the audience. Leah first gain the attention of the public after her father was cut from the Bengals’ roster and re-signed to their practice squad once the team learned the defensive tackle’s 4-year old daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 pediatric cancer last June so he can pay for her treatments. Since then, Still was placed on the team’s active roster and to show their support of him, the Bengals permitted his jersey to be sold in order to raise awareness for pediatric cancer research. Sales for the jersey have netted near $1 million.
Earlier this evening, the official Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Twitter handle showed little Leah sashaying down the catwalk for the highly-coveted event with the caption:
A hero on the runway, with dad looking on. #MBFW | #NYFW
You better strike that pose Leah! Since Leah’s diagnosis has been made public, her dad has been giving supporters updates on her health. Last month, Still revealed the cancer wasn’t gone as they thought it would be after Leah underwent surgery in September.
