Here's some excellent news: Leah Still, the young daughter of former Penn State defensive lineman Devon Still, has beaten cancer.

The 2011 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year announced the news on social media Monday night, soon after Leah finished her last treatment.

"Words can't describe how proud I am of this girl," Still wrote in an Instagram post, which is embedded below. "No matter how hard it got or how painful the treatments were (and it was pretty bad a lot of the times) she never gave up! I want to thank everyone who followed us as I documented her fight on social media. The amount of support we received was beyond amazing! I can honestly say that you all made a big difference."

Leah was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2014 when she was four years old. She became cancer-free last year in March and her final treatment began Friday, during the same week that her father, previously with the Cincinnati Bengals, signed a deal with the Houston Texans.
