My husband, Clark Moore has lived in Virginia all of his life. We have been blessed with one child, Crystal (now deceased). Clark was an avid golfer and fisherman and worked as an auto mechanic. However, in 2004, he suffered a stroke which prevented him from returning to his job.
Over a year ago, Clark became seriously ill and was diagnosed with the liver disease cirrhosis and HCC (hepatocellular carcinoma), a form of liver cancer which is very common in people with cirrhosis. After extensive testing, Clark’s doctors at MUSC (Medical University of South Carolina) determined he is a good candidate for transplantation. He was fortunate to have been placed on the liver transplant waiting list at MUSC as of 8/16/2013. A liver transplant is now his only chance for survival.
Due to the seriousness of Clark’s medical condition, I have had to leave my job to become his primary caregiver. After being placed on the waiting list, we learned we would have to relocate from Virginia to South Carolina to be closer to the hospital. Clark and I have come to realize that funding this surgery is a monumental task since there are so many uninsured transplant-related expenses. We are now up against a challenge we cannot meet alone.
This all brings me to the purpose of this letter. In order to ease the financial burden, a fundraising campaign in Clark’s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the South-Atlantic Liver Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. If you are able and would like to help, please consider making a donation:For more information, please contact HelpHOPELive at 800.642.8399.
Thank you so much for your gifts and prayers.
With sincere gratitude,
Peggy Moore (Clark’s wife)
