Why him? Why him? We got to experience Danny as a baby, and it wasn’t fair what he went through. I can take the pain; it’s OK. I am in the pain business. I didn’t want to see Danny go through that. I was told a few times that Danny didn’t have a chance to live. I wasn’t about to watch one of my children die again. There were a lot of sleepless nights.

UFC Middleweight Dan Miller discusses his son's illness in Joseph Santoliquito's excellent feature which also includes some telling quotes about Dan from his friends and family. I'm somebody who is fortunate enough to know Dan Miller the person, not the professional cage fighter, and this piece is the best story I've ever seen in terms of capturing who he is, what he's carried without complaint because his family needed him to, and why he should be an inspiration to any new husband and father.
