New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis has a daughter who was diagnosed with a rare eye disease in May. Carly-Faith Davis, only 15 months old, had to have her left eye surgically removed while battling retinoblastoma, a condition that caused a tumor to grow behind her eye.

However, the Saints linebacker shared that his daughter is now cancer-free.

Carly-Faith was fitted with a custom prosthetic eye after her surgery, and further tests have shown the cancer is finally gone. Her dad even shared a video of her celebrating after the Saints' win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Nov. 8.

Davis was originally a third-round pick by the New York Jets in the 2012 NFL Draft. He spent four seasons with the Jets before a one-year stop with the Cleveland Browns. Davis then rejoined the Jets for the 2017 season before spending the last three years with the Saints. In 137 total career games, he has made 123 starts.

The Saints moved to 7-2 after their win against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. They sit atop the NFC South and are tied with the Green Bay Packers for the best record in the conference.
