CINCINNATI (AP) - Cincinnati Bengals player Devon (DE’-vun) Still will be honored by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center for his efforts to help the fight against cancer.

The Cincinnati-based center says Still will receive its Everyday Freedom Hero Award on Tuesday. The award recognizes people who use their position and resources to improve the well-being of others.

The national attention about the battle against cancer by Still’s 4-year-old daughter Leah has helped raise at least $1.25 million for pediatric cancer research. The Bengals and other National Football League teams have helped in fundraising focused on sales of Still’s jersey.

The defensive tackle has commuted between Cincinnati and Philadelphia to be with his daughter, who has undergone surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
