Devon Still has definitely captured America’s hearts and his latest act of kindness is a testament to his generosity.
The NFL player, and dad to our favorite little fighter Leah Still, just made one young girl’s dreams come true. Still heard about the brutal cyberbullying of Texas teenager Nicole Pfister, who is 14 and battling leukemia, and wanted to do something special for her family. So, he reached out to the girl and offered to take her and her family to Disney World.
Still, whose own daughter Leah has battled cancer, tells TMZ that he was so touched by Pfister’s situation that he felt he had to do something to uplift her. Internet bullies posted pictures of the teen, writing “Knock, knock, who’s there ‘Not your white blood cells, that’s for sure.”
Pfister’s classmates at her high school in Laredo, Texas have also banded together to support the girl, wearing orange to show solidarity, and reporting her bullies to school authorities.
Still said he wanted to send a message that bullying is simply not ok and that there are people in this world who care.
Excuse us while we go grab some tissues. Such a touching story.
