On Sunday night, during the Cincinnati-New England game, the Patriots cheerleaders put on a No. 75 jersey as a tribute to Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still, whose 4-year-old daughter, Leah, is battling cancer.



In June, Leah was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer and given a 50-50 chance of survival.

To help raise money and awareness about pediatric cancer, the Cincinnati Bengals announced that all of the proceeds from the sales of Still's jersey would be donated to the pediatric research efforts of the Cincinnati Children's Hospital.


This, after Still had been cut from their 53-man roster, and then signed to the practice squad so Leah would be covered under the team's health insurance policy.

Meaning the jerseys were more than just a nice gesture, leaving Still in tears from the heartwarming tribute and meaningful donations.


So stay strong, Leah.
