Leah Still's connection with LeBron James goes back a long way. He has cited the young girl as a model of strength and courage during her year-and-a-half battle with pediatric cancer.
For Christmas, James hooked up Still's father, Devon Still, with an autographed jersey to give his daughter on Christmas Day. By then, her father had announced to the world that tests had come back clear, and his daughter was officially cancer-free.
Now, Leah Still is living the dream. James connected her with tickets to Cleveland's game against the Washington Wizards. While her father couldn't attend, after the Houston Texans signed him to a futures contract, Leah Still was more than happy to attend, and her father shared pictures from the game on his Instagram.
Had got tix to the Wizards vs Cavs game tonight so Leah could see her favorite bball player in action before her treatment. Ended up not being able to go because I had to fly to Houston but as you can see Leah wasn't about to let that stop her from seeing @kingjames tonight #iCantBlameHer #iStillLoveYouEvenThoYouWentWithoutMe #ThoughtWeWasATeam lol
After the game, Still met up with James and spent some time with the NBA great.
"I knew she was going to be there tonight, and her and Zhuri, my baby girl, are my two favorite women in the world. They're just unbelievable," James said after the game. "I know my mom and my wife will be a little bit jealous, but they got to take a backseat to those two.
"Just her strength and her courage and what she's been through over the last few years, man, it's uplifting to all of us, and it's always great seeing her, for sure."
