0325-devon-leah-still-instagram-01Great news for the Still family -- Cincinnati Bengals lineman Devon Still just announced his 4-year-old daughter Leah is WINNING her battle against cancer .... because it's officially in remission!!!

You know the back story ... Leah was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma back in June and doctors said she had a 50/50 chance to live. 

Despite the fact he wasn't supposed to make the team, the Bengals signed Devon to a contract so he would continue to get health insurance to cover Leah's medical bills.  

Leah's been fighting like hell ever since ... and Wednesday, Devon announced the tide has turned in her favor. 

"Today we received news from Leah's oncologist that her cancer, stage four neuroblastoma, is officially in REMISSION! After 296 days of daydreaming about what it would feel like to hear the doctors say my daughter is in remission, I finally know the feeling."

"When I look at my daughter all I can do is smile and hug her."

"I'm so proud and blessed to call her my daughter. She has made an impact on me and on the world, at the age of four, that I can only wish to make in a lifetime." 

Thank you to my family and friends for the support through all those tough days. Thank you to everyone who has sent a letter to give Leah and our family motivation to keep fighting, a toy that helped Leah get through her days in the hospital, and more importantly a prayer that helped God hear our cries for healing." 

He added, "Thank you to the Bengals for taking on my situation and standing by me and my family and for helping to raise money to fight pediatric cancer."

"Leah is not done with treatments yet. She still needs more to make sure the cancer cells do not return and to build back up her immune system and other damage from the chemo but I know my little warrior will get through it!"

Miley Cyrus

Gets Yanked by the Dentist

After Tooth Shaming

3/25/2015 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus Teeth Miley Cyrus has unlocked the secret to free dental advice -- post your X-ray online and let dental experts weigh in, but be warned ... it might not be all good news.

Miley posted the shot on Instagram and it didn't take long for the reviews to pour in, and several blasted her mouth work. We spoke to one reviewer, a dental assistant named Ashley, who gave us this dental Yelp:

-- Miley has veneers on all her upper teeth and had a root canal at some point
-- She might want to get another set of X-rays ... she could have a few cavities
-- Her wisdom teeth need to come out soon (the top ones are impacted and could be a big problem for her other molars if not dealt with soon) 

Miley might have taken that advice ... she posted a pic Wednesday of a few teeth she got pulled.

Fun Fact(ish): A recent study said the Tooth Fairy pays West coast kids $4.68/tooth, on average. Don't it spend all in one place, Miley.

Bill Goldberg

Wrestling Death Was A Freak Accident

... The Sport Is Totally Safe

3/24/2015 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Former pro wrestling star Bill Goldberg says the accident that took the life of a Mexican wrestling star this past weekend was a freak occurrence ... telling TMZ Sports pro wrestling is as safe ever.

Goldberg was out in L.A. when we asked him about the tragic death of 35-year-old Mexican wrestling star El Hijo Del Perro Aguayo who passed away after his spine was snapped during a match last weekend.

Aquayo lay motionless on the ropes for nearly two minutes after the injury, with the other wrestlers apparently thinking it was all part of the show.

Goldberg, a former WCW champion, says despite the horrific nature of the injury wrestling is totally safe, noting that it's VERY rare that these types of accidents happen.

"Name the amount of people who've died in the ring over the past 50 years."

We also asked Bill if he thought the WWE should do any sort of tribute to the fallen star at this weekend's Wrestlemania, and Goldberg thought it was definitely the way to go.

"There's no doubt, there needs to be a silent bell or a moment of silence for him ... there's no doubt."

Angelina Jolie  
took a second big step in minimizing a cancer risk which she has been living with for years ... she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. 

Jolie told an emotional, dramatic story in a NY Times op-ed piece, in which she talked about her normal ... an 87% chance of developing breast cancer and a 50% chance of ovarian cancer, because she carries the BRCA1 gene mutation.

The actress took proactive steps with breast cancer 2 years ago by getting a double mastectomy.   She'd been seriously considering the second preventative procedure but she was pushed into action when medical tests revealed the possibility of ovarian cancer but in the early stages. 

Angelina underwent the procedure last week, and doctors found a small benign tumor on one ovary but no signs of cancer in her tissues. 

Jolie says she's now in menopause as a result of the surgery, and she can't have any more children. She stoically writes about the fact that she has to live with the possibility of cancer but adds, "I feel feminine, and grounded in the choices I am making for myself and my family.  l know my children will never have to say, 'Mom died of ovarian cancer.'"
