Denver Police Officer Tony Lopez was shot in the line of duty and says Dr. Moore saved his life.

“It’s amazing, I don’t know how you ever thank someone for saving your life. But to be invited was awesome. We have a very good relationship, and it’s continued since the day I got hurt and since the day he saved my life,” said Lopez.
