Leah Still is set to undergo another round of chemotherapy, but not before polishing up an illustrated children's book inspired by her experience.
The 4-year-old worked with her father, Cincinnati Bengals tackle Devon Still, to create the story about Leah's experience, which they hope will help inspire others while teaching them about the experience of battling cancer.
After having numerous families contact me for advice on how to deal with fighting pediatric cancer and seeing the amount of kids that follow Leah's story, Leah and I decided to write a children's book that talks about Leah's fight to help kids that are fighting the disease now or for kids who unfortunately will get diagnosed in the future deal with the changes that will come in their life. Pre-order your copies today!! Portions of the proceeds will go to pediatric cancer! #ProudDad #BeatCancer #PrayForLeah #LeahStrong
Doctors recently determined that the last round of radiation treatment hadn't shrunk the cancer as hoped. The hope now is that this new form of chemotherapy will reduce the size of the tumor enough that Leah can undergo stem cell therapy to further eradicate the cancer.
Devon Still said he approached the book by asking Leah a set of questions about her experience, and using her answers as the outline for the story. The book, titled I Am Leah Strong, is available for pre-order now and will be released in February.
Anyone interested in buying the book, or in learning more about Leah's story, can visit her website, IAmLeahStrong.com.
Devon Still has said that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the fight against pediatric cancer.
