As fathers, we want to protect our children from harm.  We’d do anything to keep them safe and prevent them from suffering. However, we soon realize that we can’t protect them from everything, no matter how much we try. Although this is a hard pill to swallow, it doesn’t stop us from battling through difficulties for the sake of our children.

Cincinnati Bengals Defensive Tackle Devon Still is one such dad who won’t stop fighting. His love for his four year-old daughter Leah fuels his fight against her stage 4 cancer diagnosis.

In this heartfelt video, Still’s affection for his little girl is evident as he explains how support from the Bengals organization, fans, and his faith has helped him to cope with his daughter’s illness.

Stay Strong,
