Demario Davis shared a video of the happy baby girl looking healthy and well after her father’s win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.
New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis has been open about his daughter’s cancer diagnosis and now he has revealed she is in remission.
Davis sat down with TMZ Sports and gave an update on his 15-month-old daughter, Carly-Faith, who was diagnosed with a rare eye cancer known as retinoblastoma earlier this year. He told the platform he is sharing her story with a purpose and hopes to, “bring awareness to a lot of families that probably wouldn’t have known about it if it wasn’t for us going through it. Probably saved them that same unfortunate situation that we had.”
He also added to the interview uploaded Monday, “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.”
He shared a video of the happy baby girl looking healthy and well after her father’s win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.
The post is captioned saying, “For anyone wanting to know how Carly-Faith doing….. She said WHO DAT!!! ??? ?????Not the champs “yet” baby girl, but I love that energy, keep it going!!!! Letttttsssss Goooooooo #LetMeTellYallBoutTheGodIServe??””
Davis also has three additional young children: Roman-Parker, 5, and Bailey-Grace, 7, and Summer-Joy, 4.
“All my kids, after a win, most of the time they always screaming, ‘WhoDat, WhoDat!’ and singing the chant. But seeing her swing her arms like that, she was just like, ‘Let’s go, that’s a big win!’ You could just see the energy and excitement.”
