Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still has displayed incredible resolve while his young daughter battles cancer, showing video of his pep talk before her surgery and raising money for pediatric cancer with the sale of his jerseys. 

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton has helped contribute by purchasing 100 Still jerseys, and the New England Patriots showed their support on Sunday Night Football by giving the jerseys to their cheerleaders after a tribute to Still in the stadium. 

Patriots owner Robert Kraft will also be contributing.
