The Nadeem Noon Support Fund team has organized a seriously amazing online auction through the Equestrian Aid Foundation to help offset Nad’s medical expenses as he battles a condition called Amyloidosis, which has caused serious damage to his heart and other vital organs.

Here’s an update on Nad’s condition via his Faceook support page: “He has had a break from chemo this week so is able to teach 1-2 lessons a day, but even that effort is taxing. His doctor, who is recognized as one of the best experts on amyloidosis in the country, will present the case for receiving a new heart but has informed Nad that it is not likely his case will be accepted.

“They have yet to determine if the chemo is working but will be continuing with those treatments next week. Typical Nad, with all of this news, his tone is very upbeat and he still inserts his trademark humor. When we ended the conversation, I thought about the times how my tone wasn’t half as positive, for stupid reasons such as my horse jigged at the walk or we knocked a rail. Even in his current situation, Nad is still teaching.”

The online auction opened last night and will be open for bids through 7 p.m. EST Saturday. Click here to check out all the auction items up for bid, and we’ve also listed them all below:
