A Father’s Experience Tackling Childhood Cancer
Devon Still
Still Strong Foundation
Professional Athlete
Former Houston Texan

When his precious daughter Leah was diagnosed with a rare pediatric cancer in 2014 – two months after Still almost died from post-back surgery blood clots in his lungs – he miraculously returned to the football field wearing Leah’s message of hope during every game. Their journey impacted and continues to inspire millions around the world. Now, through the Still Strong Foundation, his partnership with socially conscious organizations has raised more than $2 million and is influencing the global cancer conversation.

The annual Marialuisa Lectureship for Life educates researchers, physicians, nurses, caregivers and the community about the importance of symptom and pain management for cancer patients.
