VIDEO: Devon Still celebrates daughters remission
Houston Texans DE Devon Still is celebrating a very special milestone - the one year anniversary of daughter, Leah, beating cancer.

Devon Still posted a heartfelt tribute to his daughter Leah on Friday, celebrating the one year anniversary of the 5-year-old going into cancer remission.

The Houston Texans tackle shared an image of a smiling Leah to Instagram with a touching message honoring his daughter and her battle with neuroblastoma.

From Still's Instagram post: "I want to wish a Happy (2nd) Birthday to my baby, Leah. Today, March 25th, marks a year of her being in remission! A day she was given a second chance at life. There's not enough hours in a day, days in a month, or months in a year to tell you how much I love you and how proud of you I am. Keep fighting and keep inspiring! #LeahStrong #BeatCancer #StillStrong."

The father and daughter's story captivated the nation in 2014, when Still was kept on the Cincinnati Bengals' practice squad to help him pay for Leah's cancer treatment. Devon and Leah were even honored with the Jimmy V Award at the 2015 ESPYs.
