Daniel James Miller, son of UFC middleweight fighter Dan Miller and his wife Kristin, was born with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease.

His kidneys are large, approximately 3-4 times as large as they should be, and as the name implies, full of cysts. At birth, Danny’s kidneys functioned at a level that allowed his body to clear itself of toxins and fluid, but he required medications to maintain his blood pressure and electrolyte balance. Unfortunately, when he was 2 ½ months old, he became very ill and as a result of that illness, lost all kidney function. He was hospitalized at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, Pa., where he was started on hemodialysis initially, and then later, peritoneal dialysis. Daniel was hospitalized for a total of about 2 months, the majority of that time, sedated, with multiple intravenous lines, and under constant 1:1 nursing care. His parents, Dan and Kristin learned to care for him, including the mechanics and the principles of peritoneal dialysis. Also, due to the oversized kidneys, Danny required tube feedings and special feeding considerations.

Finally, in May 2010, Danny was discharged home and thrived under the constant and loving care of his parents. He is a bright, sweet and affectionate little boy, who loves being read to, enjoys being outdoors, and is crazy about his “puppies”. He amazes us every day with his capacity to learn and to love.

Danny’s journey is far from over. Although the dialysis that he receives every day clears the toxins and excess fluid from his body, the many other functions of a normal kidney are not replaced by the dialysis, so Danny’s growth has been slow and certain hormone levels are difficult to regulate. Kidney transplantation, specifically a living donor kidney transplant, has been planned, but before that can take place, Danny must have both of his kidneys removed to make room for the transplanted kidney. Once transplantation occurs, Danny will continue frequent follow up visits to the hospital to be monitored and he will require anti- rejection medications for the rest of his life.

AMA Fight Club welcomes you to attend a Super Seminar on Saturday, December 3, 2011 to support Daniel in his treatments for autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease.

Wow. Been through some tough times with my little one but nothing quite like that. I can't even imagine what he is dealing with right now. My heart and prayers go out to your little one Dan.

 Made me sick to my stomach with sadness when I first heard about this awhile back....My prayers go out to Dan and his family, and I hope everything works out with the transplant. 

On a side note, the fact that Dan has consistently gone up against the best in his weight class for the past few years, even with this burden hanging over him, and always made it a fight, and never made excuses, has made me a huge fan of his. I will ALWAYS cheer for Dan Miller

Even though it probably won't be needed, you're a great person and have my respect for making that offer.

 TTT   Dan Miller is an excellent fighter, and I'm sure his baby inherited that warrior spirit as well.  Definitely worth helping out a fighter that has given us such great fights.
