NFL player Devon Still’s 5-year-old daughter, Leah, who made headlines for courageously battling cancer in the past year, walked the runway at the Kids Rock! Fashion Show on Thursday, Sept. 10, in NYC, reports US Magazine.
Known by her many fans as Leah Strong, dominated the runway at the Skylight at Moynihan Station for her New York Fashion Week appearance, wearing a faded denim button-down and jeans. At one point, she completed her walk with a cute impromptu twirl.

Stills thanks Kid Rock Live on his Instagram account for allowing his daughter to model. Stating,”This fashion show teaches her so much more than just how to be a model which is why I love when she does it. Leah sometimes struggles with the physical changes she went through from her cancer battle (hair and weight loss). But when I watch her walk down the runway and I see that smile on her face as she is cheered on by the crowd I see a confident side of her that’s thinking nothing of those changes.”
former Cincinnati Bengals player Devon Still, said in July in a promo video for Leah’s Jimmy V. Perseverance Award at the 2015 ESPYS. While his daughter was still too sick to accept the award herself before the athlete-studded crowd, her father gave a rousing, emotional speech about Leah’s courage in the face of illness.
Update on Leah: Stills told Kathis Lee and Hoda recently in a interview that, “”She’s doing a lot better,” he told the co-hosts. “Her health has made a complete 180, and hopefully will continue to improve.”More Stories Here
