During the prime of his NFL career, Art's life took an unexpected, near-fatal turn.
"Going into my sixth year in the league, I was living in Jacksonville, Fla., and some people conspired to kill me by putting arsenic, lye and Drano in my drink," Art explains. "This drink destroyed my life. It tore up my entire digestive tract to the point that I couldn't even digest an aspirin. I was forced to take medical leave from the Patriots. Doctors in hospitals all around the country were telling me that I wasn't going to make it.
"Then, one day, a lady minister came and shared the gospel with me," Art continues. "I gave my heart to Christ. Three days later, God began my healing. In the midst of my healing, God sent my helpmate, Gail."
Since its inception in 1979, Yes I Can! has touched the lives of countless youth by sponsoring activities and special events across the nation. The Moores' involvement in ministry increased upon meeting fellow sports stars and recording artists who shared their beliefs.
