Penn State announced on Monday that Devon Still and his daughter Leah will be the honorary captains for the annual THON game against Wisconsin on Saturday. Many Penn State fans are familiar with the story, but back in 2014, Devon Still took a leave from the Cincinnati Bengal to care for Leah, who was battling an advanced form of cancer called Neuroblastoma. In 2016, it was announced that Leah’s cancer was in remission.
Devon Still retired from the NFL in December, but continues his fight to help others battle cancer. In 2015, Still formed the Still Strong Foundation that assists families in similar situations to cover non-medical bills. Saturday’s game against Wisconsin is Penn State’s annual THON game and the team will wear a special sticker on their helmets (pictured above). The game is set for a noon kickoff and will air on ABC. #CancerSucks
