#LeahStrong: Going to Bat in the Fight Against Pediatric Cancer

Today, we came across this tweet from the NFL and two things stood out to us.

One, we couldn’t help but notice the Brewers cap sported by Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still.

But much more than that, two, we’ve been touched by the story of his 4-year-old daughter Leah, and her battle with pediatric cancer.

This week on Thursday Night Football, the Bengals will take on the Cleveland Browns and Leah will be in attendance to see her dad play for the first time, as she has been recovering from surgeries.

During a break in the game, the Bengals will make a $1.25 million dollar donation to Cincinnati Childrens’ Hospital for pediatric cancer research. The donation encompasses proceeds from the sale of Still’s jersey and Leah is expected to be part of the ceremony.

Leah, we admire your bravery and love your attitude. We also love your dad’s cap. The Brewers are donating $1000 to the fight against pediatric cancer and we’re encouraging our fans to do the same.

Donations can be funneled through Brewers Community Foundation by clicking here. Be sure to select “In Honor Of” and earmark the donation for Leah Still.

In the fight against cancer–no matter the team, no matter the sport and no matter what–we’re all on the same team.
