CINCINNATI (AP) -- Defensive tackle Devon Still's 4-year-old daughter got one of the biggest cheers on a cold, windy night Thursday at Paul Brown Stadium.

Leah Still was on the field after the first quarter when the Cincinnati Bengals presented Children's Hospital with a check for more than $1 million to help with cancer research and treatment. The girl is being treated for cancer.

She was released from a hospital in Philadelphia and flew to Cincinnati to see her father play for the first time, sitting in an overhead suite for most of the game against Cleveland.

Still wrote "Leah Strong" on his eye black strips. Police officers working the game wore his uniform No. 73 on their backs.  4-year-old Leah is being treated for a rare cancer at a Philadelphia hospital.

It was the first time she's watched her father play.  During the first quarter, the team presented the Children's Hospital with a check for $1.3 million to help with cancer research and treatment. The team raised the money by selling Devon Still jerseys.

The father and daughter also shared a special moment before the game.  The NFL posted a touching video of her waving to her Dad on the field and wishing him luck for the game.  To watch the video, CLICK HERE.
