Cincinnati Bengals veteran defensive tackle Devon Still is battling a tough family issue.

Still's daughter, Leshari, has cancer.

And Still shared the bad news on Instagram:

"I debated with myself whether I was going to post anything on social media but I felt it would be beneficial for my family," Still wrote. "Last night I found out my daughter has cancer...I decided to let ppl know not for sympathy because I've come to the point where I no longer feeling sorrow but to ask that y'all keep my daughter in your prayers the more prayers that go up the more faith we habe that she will overcome this obstacle...if y'all know me y'all know this girl is my world I know that she is strong and she won't let anything hold her down without a fight..thanks everyone for the continued support of my family."

National Football Post extends its best wishes to Devon Still and his daughter.
