Well it's been a about a month and a half since my very good friend Nick Moore was diagnosed with a disease that would take his eyesight. One eye was gone and the other was certain to go with it. In a desperate attempt to save his eyesight, Nick called upon the help of the mountain bike community to help him pay for a surgery that might be able to stop his good eye from worsening. After countless donations, t shirt sales, and contributions from companies that support Nick, and some that have little to do with him, Nick got what he needed. In early November, Nick went into surgery and all went well. All went better than we had hoped and Nick's eyesight is returning. Nick is a powerful influence in my life of what a person should be and what a friend should be.
Nick's eyes are an example of what happens when a community comes together to take care of one of their own. Many people put in time, money, support, prayers, promotion, attention and love to save Nick's eyes. I am grateful to be a part of that community and so is Nick. We love you, Nick and we're glad we could help!
Here is Nick's emotional thank-you to everyone who helped him keep his eyesight.
