Man Plows Snow to Help Friend Pay Medical Bills

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a man plows snow to help raise money so his friend can pay off his medical bills. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

For Kansas City, Missouri, resident Mike Moore the more snow there is, the more help he can give 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 says.

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," Moore says.

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.
