I would do whatever it took to save my daughter's life, insured or not.

I didn't see in the article where it said that it was treatment to save the daughter's life. I also didn't see where it said that they were responsible for the medical debt, and it is just as likely that they were not responsible for it, and the daughter could have handled the medical expenses in other ways. There's not enough information given, but it did look to me like it wasn't the daughter's medical expenses that put them on the brink. It looked a lot more to me like they had overspent beyond their means. Even so, they were spending money that they had to borrow, and so now they have to deal with paying that money back.
