Daniels now lives with Hepatitis C and HIV from his many years of drug use. Almost all of his friends who were addicted to heroin have either overdosed or died from Hepatitis C or HIV. Daniels said that based upon his medical track record he should be dead too. Instead, he lives with and treats both diseases with relatively few complications. He also recently survived a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Daniels believes that divine intervention is the only possible reason he is alive today.
