Man plows snow to help clear friend's mounting medical bills

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

It can be challenging to find the silver lining this winter with all the snow and bitter cold. 

Many are tired of all the snow, but not Mike Moore. For him, the more snow, the more help he can give his best friend.

For Moore, there is nothing more gratifying than the thankless job of plowing snow.

"I've always done this, for neighbors, friends or family," he said.

This winter is a little different. With every step, he clears away a path and heaps of medical debt for his childhood friend, Nick Crewse.

"Nick had a stroke in December. He subsequently had a lengthy hospital stay, and he had medical bills that accrued from that. He has insurance, but insurance doesn't cover everything," Moore said.

Crewse needed surgery to repair a hole in his heart. A blood clot caused the 29-year-old's stroke just before Christmas.

"Now, still three months later, he is still dealing with the pressure in his brain that the stroke had caused. Basically, it is like he has a really bad migraine and it doesn't stop," Moore said.

To ease the pressure on his friend's young family, Moore uses his time and tools to plow people's driveways in return for a donation to help pay his friend's medical fund.

Word spread through social media. Now, after a big snow storm, he will clear up 40 driveways in a day.

"If you're able to, it is an excellent opportunity. It is a wonderful family that would absolutely appreciate the help and generosity, just helping someone out in a time of need and paying it forward a little bit," Moore said.

And help remove a burden until there's nothing left.

Moore has cleared anything from driveways to sidewalks.

If we do get another snow, click here to contact Moore or donate to the fundraiser.
