Days after being awarded an ESPY, Leah Still, 5, the daughter of Cincinnati Bengals star Devon Still, received the trophy.
Devon Still took to Twitter Thursday to share a photo of Leah with the Jimmy V award for perseverance.
"This ESPY might have both of our names on it but this is Leah's trophy!" wrote Still.
Doctors didn't allow the child to travel from her Ohio home to the awards show, so Still took the stage and gave a moving speech about her.
The 2015 ESPY Awards were hosted by comedian Joel McHale on Wednesday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
