I know this terms used often but those Miller boyus truly are class acts. God bless their family and may Dan's son get better!

Although I only have 73% of 1 kidney, I haven't had to go through treatment since I was 7. This hits home with me for the reason above. Although ill never wear the shirt I will buy one. Maybe my brother will wear it
