Some of your favorite athletes have done it. If they were great in their sport, nine times out of 10, they did it. Just name them: Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Walther Payton, Jackie Joyner Kersee, the list goes on and on for those who have graced the cover of a Wheaties cereal box.
So who’s the latest inspiration to be featured on the coveted orange and white box? None other than Leah Still, the daughter of Cincinnati Bengals’ Devon Still. For those who remember, Leah was initially diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma in June 2014 and was given a 50-50 chance to live.
Her last scan in July showed no signs of cancer! So we continue to pray she fights to a full recovery.
Tuesday, Devon sent the picture of his daughter on the cover of the box via twitter.

We don’t know for sure yet whether the cover was a prototype, made especially for the Stills, or if it will be on store shelves anytime soon. One thing’s for sure, if anyone deserves it, Leah does. This courageous young lady deserves to be mentioned with the rest of the champions for years to come.
