Quote from the article:

“Simms and his wife say the trainer wouldn’t be alive today if not for the help of the trainer’s owners, who are among his closest friends.

Burr Travis, the Northern Kentucky lawyer who organizes many of the partnerships owning the stable’s horses, showed up unexpectedly at Simmses’ Shelbyville farm the day Garry got the harrowing early verdict. Travis announced that he had a plan of attack. It didn’t include Simms dying.

Travis became Simms’ self-described health-care manager, learning so much about multiple myeloma that one of the trainer’s doctors asked if he was a doctor.”
