Known to her fans as Leah Strong, the 5-year-old has been in the news for the inspiring way she and her family handled her battle with stage 4 neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer.

Now in remission, she looked gorgeous and healthy while walking the catwalk in the Kids Rock! Spring 2016 fashion show at the Skylight at Moynihan Station in Manhattan.

Her first look was a faded denim ensemble with the the words, "#LeahinLevis" on the back, and she even gave the audience a flawless twirl on the runway!

Leah then made a second appearance on the runway, rocking a sporty Nike top, pink pants and a pair of sunglasses.

The 26-year-old father gushed about how proud he was of his daughter on Instagram. "Thanks @kidsrocklive for giving Leah another opportunity to be a part of your amazing show!" he wrote."This fashion show teaches her so much more than just how to be a model which is why I love when she does it. Leah sometimes struggles with the physical changes she went through from her cancer battle (hair and weight loss)."

"But when I watch her walk down the runway and I see that smile on her face as she is cheered on by the crowd I see a confident side of her that's thinking nothing of those changes," he added. "Teaching her to embrace who she is will stick with her for life! When she got backstage after she walked she told people 'I was walking so hard and they loved it.' #LeahStrong #LeahInLevis #LeahInNike."

Cue the aws! With his heartwarming words, it sounds like Devon is super supportive of Leah's future career as a runway model.

Leah isn't a stranger to fashion shows, as she made her runway debut in February's Kids Rock! show.

NFL stars were well represented at this latest Kids Rock! event. Each year, the show benefits a charity, and this time around, they chose the Victor Cruz Foundation. Created by the New York Giants running back in 2012, the foundation offers support for youth to achieve success in the workforce and life.

Other celebrity children who participated in the show included Victor's daughter, Kennedy; Melissa Joan Hart's sons, Mason and Braydon; rapper Fabolous' son, Johan Jackson; and reality star Melissa Gorga's children, Antonia and Joey Gorga.

Stars like Devon have been bringing awareness to cancer by sharing their personal stories. Watch the video below to hear some of those battles that were shared in last year's Stand Up To Cancer telethon.
