Charity fundraising

Leah planned to celebrate five years cancer-free with a dinner at her favorite steakhouse. The 10-year-old daughter of former NFL player Devon Still had to settle for a home-cooked meal when the coronavirus pandemic scuttled those plans. Shoutouts, though, lauding her recovery from entertainment and sports stars ranging from Kevin Hart to LeBron James were a pretty sweet reward for a girl who raised cancer awareness and funds during her own fight with the disease.
