In June 2014, Leah Still — daughter of NFL defensive end Devon Still — was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma at just 4 years old. Over the next year and a half, Devon and his longtime girlfriend, Asha Joyce, fought alongside Leah day in and day out, putting their wedding plans on hold and praying that their girl would land on the right side of the 50-50 chance doctors gave her to live.
Last November, Devon announced via Instagram that Leah's latest scans showed NED (No Evidence of Disease), and in March he congratulated her on her one-year anniversary of entering remission. Now the family has finally had the chance to celebrate in style with the wedding they all deserved. Over the weekend, Devon and Asha got hitched, with none other than Leah serving as the main flower girl.
Judging by the way all three danced, it was quite the happy night:
Leah's story had the whole nation captivated and, due to her resilience, she's got a second chance at life along with the ability to inspire others going through hard times. Whether you catch her on a Wheaties box, presenting a comeback player of the year award, or breaking it down on the dance floor, you won't be able to resist her relentless positivity.
"To see my daughter walking here at my wedding, healthy, knowing she is cancer free is a tear-jerker for me," Still told People on the special night. "We are using this night to celebrate the strength that we have of making it together as a family. We're a hell of a team to make it through and to be here, finally happy and at peace."
