When Leah Still, the daughter of NFL Cincinnati Bengals tackle Devon Still, walked out on the runway at the Levi's Kids fashion show during New York Fashion Week on Thursday, the room erupted in cheers.
That's because even though the four-year-old has been battling cancer since June, she's inspiring thousands with her strength and determination.

Looking adorable in a shirtdress, leggings and vest, Leah happily walked to Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off' with her hand firmly placed on her hip.
It was an emotional day for her NFL player dad, who made headlines last September when he was cut from the Bengals then resigned to their practice squad so he could receive health insurance for his only child.
Devon captioned one photo, "She looked like a natural" while writing "My little supermodel 😢" next to the below video.

Leah was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma last summer and has since undergone various surgeries and treatments. Last month, cancer cells were still found in her body after a series of tests to determine her progress.

It understandably hit Devon hard. "I wanted to hear so bad that my daughter's cancer was gone and when I didn't it hurt me bad," the father wrote at the time.
