Great news! According to Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still, after 296 days of battling cancer, his 4-year-old daughter Leah is officially in remission.

Still posted an image of a smiling Leah to his Instagram Wednesday afternoon with the following caption:

Leah was diagnosed last June with rare Stage 4 neuroblastoma and has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments after having a tumor removed last September. Still took time away from football after his daughter's diagnosis, but the team kept him on the roster so he could keep his health insurance. The team raised money for pediatric cancer research through sales of Still's No. 75 jersey.

Still thanked everyone who has supported his family throughout Leah's battle and says she will continue treatments to make sure the cancer does not return.
