I am not a football person. I have always been much more interested in watching paint dry, grass grow, etc. You get the idea. But as I am scanning the news feeds this morning, I ran across the article on Fox Sports about Devon Still.
I must say that in today’s day and age, where most people only look out for number one, and most companies have ZERO loyalty with their employees, this is a lovely and refreshing stand.
Or, it could be a PR move. Don’t know. Don’t care- all I know is that it is giving a father an opportunity to continue the fight for the life of his child, and no matter the reasoning behind it, I am sure that he is grateful for that chance.
In case you didn’t know, Devon Still’s young daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 pediatric cancer. He had missed some practices, and was cut from the team. Apparently the Bengals decided to re-instate him but on the practice team. This way he doesn’t have to travel and is able to retain a salary and his health benefits.
It is always a refreshing change to hear something positive in the news! Positivity on the news feed
Good luck little Leah Still! We are all rooting for you!
