If there is one person that knows about cancer, it’s former Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Devon Still. His daughter Leah was diagnosed with the terrible disease over a year ago and has since been declared cancer-free.
During his daughter’s treatment, the Bengals left Still on the payroll so he could pay for it as well as donating all of his jersey sales to them. It looks like Still is trying to give back in any way he can.
According to TMZ, Still is taking a 14-year-old cancer patient and her family to Disney World after he heard of her being bullied. One of Nicole Pfister’s classmates took a picture of her and posted it to Instagram and made some very rude comments saying that she should kill herself for even being at school after losing her hair due to chemotherapy.
The site said they had contacted Still and he confirmed to them that he would take Pfister and her family to Disney World. He said that it hit home for him because he is worried how Leah will be treated at school for looking different.
This is certainly a great story for everyone to feel good about. Still knows the true meaning of giving back and should this family accept his offer, I’m sure they will all have a very happy holiday.
