2019 Survivor Soul Stroll

Leah Strong is going through her final cancer treatment, and her dad Devon Still could think of no better way to celebrate than to take in a basketball game.

The NFL player posted a picture of his 5 year old courtside at the Cleveland Cavaliers game against the Washington Wizards this week. It was a special treat for his little girl, who has been battling cancer, just before she went in for her last round of treatment.

Even though Devon couldn’t make it, Leah was still present for the game. She wasn’t going to miss a chance to see her favorite player.

The night held an even bigger surprise as Leah got a chance to meet LeBron himself! And he was just as thrilled to get a chance to spend some time with her.

You go girl!!! Last treatment session today was a success and we're off and running like never before. Continue to inspire me as well as so many others. Uncle LeBron loves you so much and we're going to play Barbie house/tea party all together very soon. U, Daddy, Zhuri and Uncle LeBron.

The NBA champ continued gushing about her to ESPN after the game, adding that she has a very special place in his heart.

“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,” he said. “I know my mom and my wife will be a little bit jealous, but they got to take a backseat to those two.”

He continued, “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.”

The very next day, Leah began her last week of treatment, still pumped from meeting LeBron.
