The newlyweds Devon Still and Asha (Joyce) Still put their wedding planning on hold when Leah was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Still's football career with the Cincinnati Bengals was also paused so he could spend more time with his daughter.

Still credits Asha for helping him and Leah get through cancer treatments and setbacks and promised her "the wedding of her dreams" in his 2015 ESPYs acceptance speech.
"You stood by my side, you let me know that you weren't going anywhere, that you were going to be there for me," Still said during his acceptance speech for the Jimmy V Perseverance Award. "I promise you I'm going to try and give you the wedding of your dreams."
