    A lot of pro football was played on Thanksgiving, but last week's biggest win was earned a day earlier by the 5-year-old daughter of former NFL player Devon Still, according to "TODAY."

    Doctors found "no evidence of disease" in Leah Still almost a year and a half after she was diagnosed with cancer, the 26-year-old former Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle announced Wednesday on Instagram.

    "Thanks for all the support and prayers!" reads the caption accompanying an image of the words "Thank you," in cursive. "Just got the phone call that her scans showed NED (no evidence of disease)!"

    Since June 2014, when doctors diagnosed Leah with Stage-4 neuroblastoma and gave her a 50/50 chance to survive, it's been a roller-coaster of emotions for everyone involved.
