UFC NEWS – Miller’s Schedule Surgery For Son Following Major Donations From Dana White And Lorenzo Fertitta


Tis the season to be generous…

With the holidays upon us, many people look for ways to give back, to share with loved ones and to be selfless and giving. Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta are apparently no different.

We announced here on BJPENN.COM a few weeks ago that Dan Miller’s son was in desperate need of surgery to replace an abnormal kidney.

With the cost of the procedure being so high, the Miller family set up the “Daniel James Miller Foundation” and everyone from friends and family to the MMA Community took part and tried to provide some relief to them through charitable donations.

With time ticking away, UFC president Dana White as well as CEO Lorenzo Fertitta made substantial donations that will provide the family with all the relief they need and then some.

Miller’s coach, Mike Constantino announced the news to mmajunkie.com:

“Zuffa went above and beyond to make sure that Daniel James Miller and his aunt Kathy, who will be the living donor, will have the absolute best health care and the funding possible to make the surgery happen. In addition to that, Dana and Lorenzo also made a substantial donation to the Daniel James Miller Foundation.”

“I would like to thank Dana and Lorenzo for reaching out to help Dan Miller and his family. Zuffa has proven time and time again that they take care of their own, and they should be recognized for that. These are the things that make being a part of the UFC family so special.”

“…The MMA community really stepped up, and I am very proud to say that I am a part of it.”
