It's been a whirlwind season for Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still. His 4-year-old daughter Leah's battle with cancer has sparked an outpouring of support from not just the sports world, but really all corners.

His jersey sales turned into a $1.25 million donation to Cincinnati Children's Hospital for cancer research. All the while, Devon Still visited the hospital to hand out jerseys to cancer patients, met inspirational basketball player Lauren Hill and even appeared on "The Ellen Show."

But Thursday night might be the biggest night of all: The Bengals will make their $1.25 million donation to the hospital and there will be one special guest, Leah Still, who will see her dad play for the first time in person.

Young Leah Still isn't receiving her treatment in Cincinnati. She's actually in Philadelphia. That's meant a lot of travel for Devon Still on off days to visit his daughter. This week, the daughter came to the father and their reunion in the airport will tug at your heart.

There will not be a dry eye in the house, even amid a tense and meaningful AFC North game between the Browns and the Bengals, when the crowd sees Leah.

 

The wait is finally over GN 😴 ✌️
