Former Jets linebacker Demario Davis recently revealed that his one-year-old  daughter Carly-Faith Davis is now cancer free after fighting Retinoblastoma for several months.  

Back in May, Carly-Faith was diagnosed with the form of eye cancer, which is rare and mostly affects young children. However, after treatments and a custom prosthetic eye, she is in remission.

Demario Davis, 31, told TMZ, “I’m a person that just never try to take anything for granted and to know what she’s been through, even to the point of having to lose her eye, but her body is free of cancer.”
