"This father is doing everything he can to just keep things going, keep electricity going, to keep this little baby going," Walker said. "My little girl means the whole world to me. I really want to believe that if I was placed in the same situation that I would rise above, that I would be able to see it through the end and do what it would take to make sure my baby came out on top."
Walker, who has a 13-year-old daughter, said the premise of a father fighting to keep his child alive is what drew him in.
