Nicole Moore, despite battling kidney cancer and losing her hair to chemotherapy, was working very hard on her wedding plans. The thrill of winning a social media contest for a free custom-made wig for her wedding day soon turned to disappointment when the wigmaker dropped the ball. That's when Davion Anderson, a Houston hairstylist known as "Mister A," stepped in. "I definitely wouldn't want anyone to do that to my sister, or my mother or anyone that I loved," he told FOX 26 Houston.

The station's story on Mister A and his foundation, Defining Your Own Beauty, inspired many others to help. Soon, Moore and her fiance Fred Zimmerman had a dream wedding planned for October 25, 2015, with clothing, flowers, music, catering and photography services all donated and ready to go.

Then, just weeks before the big day, doctors quietly told the couple that it was unlikely that Moore would live to see her wedding day. She accepted this new reality and quickly planned on having a small nuptial ceremony instead of the big dream wedding.

Her community of supporters -- by this time including family, friends, wedding contributors, hospital staff and FOX 26 personnel -- came together. With just hours' notice, a room in the hospital was transformed into a gorgeous wedding venue, and family and friends arrived weeks earlier than planned to participate in a beautiful wedding that wasn't missing a thing. "It's unexplainable, how helpful and loving they are," a tearful Moore -- now Zimmerman -- told FOX 26. 


The Zimmermans planned to give some of the funds from Nicole's medical GoFundMe page to Mister A's foundation, reports Rickey Smiley.
