Welcome to the CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends of Father Moore updated in one place. Your support and words of hope and encouragement are appreciated. Thank you for visiting. One of us will try and update the site at least weekly and more frequently if there is "breaking news". As many know, Father Moore was diagnosed with an inoperable, aggressive (and of course it would have to be) rare form of cancer, Angiosarcoma, in August of 2016. In the fall of 2016 he was administered radiation and had several surgeries. In April of 2017 he learned that the cancer spread to his lungs. Further radiation or surgery was not an option. Prominent Alaskan Priest diagnosed with inoperable cancer. (http://www.catholicanchor.org/alaska-news/father-moore-diagnosed-inoperable-cancer/
) He travelled to Arizona mid-April to consider the option of non-curative chemotherapy. While there, on April 21, he fell (a long story) six feet, breaking nine ribs and underwent surgery to re-inflate his lung. He was in ICU/Acute Care hospitals in Arizona until May 10th when he was flown home and admitted to Saint Elias Specialty Hospital, a long term acute care hospital in Anchorage. He is expected to recover from the broken ribs but is tired and in pain. He was discharged from the hospital May 27 and is home, St Elizabeth
Rectory, gaining strength and independent mobility every day. He is now "in training " for his trip to Scotland at the end of July. Please call him if you would like to see him. Visitors are a good and welcome event!!
