MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A young boy who came to Minnesota to get help with his rare disease has died.

Last May, WCCO talked with 10-year-old Nick Moore of Oskaloosa, Iowa while he was a patient at University of Minnesota’s Amplatz Children’s Hospital.

He was born with the rare skin disease Epidermolysis Bullosa, or EB, a painful condition where his skin doesn’t stick to his body.

While he was here, Nick underwent a stem cell transplant. It was not considered a cure, but it was done to help ease the pain.

On his CaringBridge website, his mother, Elizabeth Moore, said, “On this journey, he was a trooper, never complained ever … always waiting to get better.”
