In November, Moore made a trip to Riley Children's Hospital to visit Mason after his chemotherapy.

"To begin with he was quiet and shy. He wasn't in the mood because he was going through chemo that day," Moore recalls. "But as time went on, he began to lighten up. He's like I guess this guy does play for the Colts."
