Leah Still, the cancer-stricken 4-year-old daughter of Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still, finally got to see her dad play professional football Thursday night and was a guest of honor at the game.

Leah traveled from Philadelphia, where she is undergoing treatment, to Cincinnati to watch the Bengals take on the Cleveland Browns and help the Bengals present a check to Children's Hospital in Cincinnati for pediatric cancer treatment and research.

The team raised more than $1.3 million through sales of Still's #75 jersey, which has been the 11th most popular NFL jersey for the past seven months, according to ESPN.

As he has in past games, Still had the words "Leah Strong" written across his eye black. Police officers at the game had the number 75 on the back of their uniforms.

Leah got to hang out with the Bengals cheerleaders before the game.

Earlier Thursday, Still showed how he was getting ready for the game with Leah.

Leah was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma in June. She had a tumor removed in September and continues to undergo chemotherapy and radiation. Earlier in the season, the Bengals kept her dad on the practice squad to ensure that he would continue to receive the health benefits necessary for Leah's care. He's since been placed on the active roster.

"It's going to be emotional knowing that she's there," Still told ABC affiliate WCPO Cincinnati ahead of Thursday night's game. "It's definitely going to be an emotional game, but there's going to be a lot of excitement knowing she's there."
