A little over a year ago, 5-year-old Leah Still received a cancer diagnosis. She fought hard and her father Devon Still, defensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals, stood by her side every step of the way.
With Leah in remission, she can certainly be dubbed a champion and now she has a Wheaties box to prove it. Still posted a photo of the box to his Instagram account with the caption, "Thanks @wheatiescereal in the words straight out of Leah's mouth, this is so awesome!! #LeahStrong#StillStrong."
Covering the Wheaties box has been an ongoing tradition for U.S. athletes who show superb skills on and off the field to accompany the slogan "breakfast of champions." Though Leah fought her battle a little differently than most athletes, hers was a fight worthy of celebration.
Her Stage 4 neuroblastoma is officially in remission.
"For every child out there that's battling cancer ... y'all are the real heroes," he said.
Glad Wheaties agrees.
