When we launched this web site yesterday and first passed the link around we did not know what kind of response to expect. While hopes were high due to the fantastic communal spirit the MMA world has shown in the past for a worthy cause, and the fantastic friends and family who surround the Miller family, to say the outpouring of support has been overwhelming is an understatement. The past 24 hours have been an incredible example of the best of human nature and has shown once again the truly wonderful people who make up the MMA community.
Links to the Foundation and offers of support have poured in from around the world. We wish we could thank all those who helped to spread word of our efforts individually but the numbers quickly became much too large and widespread to stay on top of. Please know that every single donation, and every single post and tweet is appreciated. Whether you are family, a friend, a former opponent, a future opponent, a boss, a member of the media or somebody looking to help out a child for no reason more than the kindness in your heart, your consideration and help is truly touching and heartwarming.
Danny’s family is similarly touched by the love and consideration shown so far, and asked to post a statement for all those who have helped to date, and those intending to help in the future:
Kristin and I want to thank you for the overwhelming amount of love and support for our amazing little boy Danny. The generosity that everyone has shown leaves us speechless. We truly appreciate your heartfelt words of support for Danny and our family.
Danny also wanted to say thank you, but he got a little shy when the camera came out so he showed off his animal signs and karate skills instead.
