Devon Still received some encouraging news Tuesday about his daughter Leah's battle with a rare pediatric cancer.

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle and former Penn State University player Devon Still received some encouraging news Tuesday about his daughter Leah's battle with a rare pediatric cancer.

Diagnosed last June with Stage 4 neuroblastoma, Leah has undergone surgeries to remove a cancerous tumor from her stomach, in addition to other rounds of treatments, including chemotherapy and stem-cell treatments.

Earlier this week, Still had tweeted about his daughter's upcoming testing.

Fortunately, he received the good news he was praying for and posted the following to Instagram on Tuesday:

That moment you get the best news you've ever received and don't know what to do so you just flex!! We got Leah's MIBG Scans back tonight and the doctors told us they didn't see any active disease in her body!!! We still have to wait for her MRI and bone biopsy results later this week. But the doctors feel very optimistic about them because of the results from today. So for now we celebrate!! #LeahStrong
