Former Cincinnati Bengals player Devon Still is sharing some good news about his daughter Leah, whose struggle with cancer has had millions of people across the country rooting for her recovery. Still says the latest tests show 5-year-old Leah remains cancer-free.

"Thanks for all the support and prayers!" Still wrote in an Instagram post. "Just got the phone call that her scans showed NED (no evidence of disease)!"

Devon Still was released by the Cincinnati Bengals earlier this fall. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports he's been busy fundraising for pediatric cancer research and awareness through his Still Strong Foundation.

Leah was diagnosed in June 2014 with neuroblastoma, a cancer that affects the nerve cells. Her dad announced in March that her cancer was in remission.

In July, Leah was honored with the Jimmy V. Perseverance Award at the ESPYs, and while she was too sick to attend, her father accepted on her behalf.
