Nicole Moore of Orangeville defied all odds.

She stared right into the eyes of a shark and fought it off. Then she bravely tested herself, not once, but a number of times.

While on vacation in Mexico, Moore was attacked by a shark and has since endured 14 surgeries and 21 months of excruciating rehabilitation.

The Orangeville nurse calls herself “Shark Lady” and her story is one of survival and recovery as well as her amazing test of faith.

The mother of two returned to shark territory, not once but twice, to face her fears and to make she her daughters never fear the water.
