Bengals lineman announced his daughter has cancer
CINCINNATI (Derek Drake) -- Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still missed practice on Tuesday, and later that day announced on his Instagram account some difficult news.
Monday night, Still learned his daughter has cancer after spending most of the day in the hospital, according to his Instagram account.
In his post on Instagram, he says he's not putting this out publicly for publicity or sympathy, because he said, "I've come to the point where I no longer feel sorrow."
Instead he's putting his daughter's battle out there so that friends, family, fans and prayer warriors will keep his daughter and his family in their prayers.
"The more prayers that go up, the more faith we have that she will overcome this obstacle," Still said in the post. "If y'all know me, y'all know this girl is my world. I know that she is strong and she won't let anything hold her down without a fight."
Bengals Nation, it's time to lift up this man, his daughter and family. You can send your thoughts to Devon on Twitter, @Dev_Still71, or on Instagram, man_of_still75.
Devon also put another post on his Instagram account responding to the outpouring of support and requests to send his daughter Leah things. You can read that post here.
