Amazing story in the Denver Post yesterday:
Last Sunday, a Denver man in his 30s - I am withholding his name at the family's request - ran a 10K in Steamboat Springs and began suffering searing leg pain. Monday, he needed surgery, followed by another operation, and the loss of a major league muscle. He was diagnosed with compartment syndrome. By Thursday night, hope became a stranger, and the family was reeling.
Research led them to [Rahim] Moore, who nearly lost his left leg last season following a similar diagnosis. With help from a 9News staff member, the family emailed the Broncos at 9:40 p.m. Media relations director Patrick Smyth answered and sent a text to Moore at 9:42. Moore told Smyth he wanted to meet them immediately. At 10:15 p.m., Moore sat bedside at a metro-area hospital with the man and his family. He provided information on recovery, encouraged him and formed a prayer circle with the group.
According to Troy Renck who blogged this story on the Post's "First-And-Orange" blog, the folks in attendance were "staggered" by Moore's compassion. But honestly, nothing what Moore does surprises any of us here. It just fills us up with even more Bruin pride.
