As you know, we’ve been following an unfortunate story regarding UFC middleweight Dan Miller‘s son, Danny Jr., who is suffering from polycystic kidney disease (PKD) and needs a kidney transplant. The transplant itself is going to cost $100,000, not to mention the additional $10,000 per month in medication for at least one year that is only partially covered by his insurance. We’ve been asking for your help with donations, and you have been generous to the cause so far.
The struggle is by no means over, but we’re pleased to learn that Daniel James Miller has a kidney transplant scheduled for late-January, according to MMAJunkie.com. The surgery was made possible by significant donations from UFC co-owners Lorenzo Fertitta and Dana White.
While this is certainly a welcomed update, let’s make sure to remember two important things:
1.) As fans, we’re quick to point out when Dana White makes a questionable decision. Let’s make sure we also applaud him for standing up for one of his fighters.
2.) Dan Miller still has $10,000 per month to pay for medication for the next year after his surgery. Your generosity is still needed.
