Devon Still’s Emotional ESPY Speech
The ESPY Awards always provide a wide range of emotions. They illicit laughter much of the time, but they also illicit stories of inspiration, triumph, perseverance, and can bring viewers to tears at any moment.
Such was the case last night when Bengals OL Devon Still accepted the Jimmy V Award with/on behalf of his daughter Leah, who is battling cancer. Leah still was unable to attend and is still receiving daily chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
Watch Still's emotional speech here as he talks about the battle he and Leah have undergone since her diagnosis. Furthermore, listen to him thank his full support system, from the Bengals, to Marvin Lewis, to the media.
Wow. What a speech. And what an emotional tribute to Leah before the speech. And what a great moment seeing Leah appear by satellite.
We, like everyone else in the world, is rooting for Leah to "beat up cancer."
