It's been a whirlwind of a year for 5-year-old Leah Still, who survived the 50-50 odds she was given in her cancer battle after receiving a diagnosis of stage IV neuroblastoma in June 2014.
The daughter of Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still ceremoniously rang the bell at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia last month to mark her final radiation treatment. She's been all smiles lately, collecting the Jimmy V. Perseverance Award at the ESPYs and challenging NBA champ Stephen Curry's daughter Riley to a 'Whip' dance off.
Leah's achievements and spirit have earned her an illustrious title reserved for only the toughest figures in sports. She's a Wheaties Champion now, complete with her own cereal box, which her father revealed in tweet Tuesday night.
The father-daughter duo has vowed to continue its fight against cancer, even in health. Earlier this month, they launched the Still Strong Foundation to support childhood cancer research and assist families in need when a loved one is undergoing treatment.
Leah is now a cancer survivor and an author at just 5 years old. If the ukelele in her hand on the Wheaties box isn't just part of a quirky photo, it looks like she might be a budding musician, too.
