APRIL 20, 1955 - SEPTEMBER 22, 2008


We Can’t Believe You’re Gone

Dad, our sadness knows no end;
We can’t believe you’re gone;
We’re grieving for you every day;
It’s hard to carry on.

You were always there to support and care,
When we needed a true friend,
How we’ll ever do without our dad,
We cannot comprehend.

You were our teacher and our guide,
Our dad, so good and strong;
Your example will sustain us now,
And last our whole lives long.

We’re trying to communicate;
We hope that you can hear;
Expressing what we feel for you,
Helps us feel you’re near.

Our memories of the times we had
Help the pain to go away.
But Dad, our lives won’t be the same;
We’ll miss you every day.

A part of us went with you;
You left a gap too big to fill;
You’re our father and our hero;
We love you and we always will.
By Joanna Fuchs

Hello All,

I am very sorry I have not posted in so long. I have just been trying to keep it all together.
I am now back to work (thank God) I must have sent out 100 resumes since January 08.
Don't get me wrong I love being off with my children, but disability is not enough to live on, all annuity's, pension's and savings are gone, so off to work I go I hope I can keep it up.

The divorce is final, the last few months were very trying!
I also experienced a couple of week's of extreme abdominal pain I thought might be the cancer, It turned out, (by no help from doctors) that when I was in China for my transplant they were unable to put the gallbladder in me. So I should have been on a special diet, thanks so much U.S. doctors for not reading the post transplant manuscript from the Chinese doctor's.
So no more bacon, greasy foods, cheese thing's like that.

I still get many people corresponding with me re: transplants for themselves or there loved one's and the most common question is how to go to China to do it, and unfortunately I have to tell them that China has halted all foreign transplants, but there are still option's, anyone needing help should contact me either here or my personal e-mail

The kid's are on summer vacation now and are well we are going to do all we can to have fun with each other this summer.

I will try to post more often in the future

Hey everyone,

I hope everyone is doing well.
Well Easter is almost here and sooner than most, the last time it was this early was in 1865 and the next time it will be early will be in 224 years. More useless info.

Chuck P. I tried to email you re: your friend with the similar situation as mine and was unable to get through, can you email me directly at ?
Also for anyone else out there, China has stopped all foreign transplants, don't give up, I have been in contact with a patient who is in another country for his transplant, and they take medical insurerence from other country's but not the U.S.A. thanks to our AMA . So anyone needing this info please email me separately.

Happy Easter to everyone and have a great year, keep blogging and keep in touch.

Thank you all for your support, and a very special thanks to the unknown donor.

Hi everyone,

I hope all is well, Sam & Dom want me to tell you guy's they are having lot's of fun.
And helping me with this posting, Sam had her 5th birthday party last Sunday, and we had lot's of fun. Dom's birthday is next 04/06, were not shure if we want to go to Malibu or another venue,but we will wet you know. "Good job Dom".

I was invited to be on the Oprah Winfrie show last week. But did not get on due to the other guests that were long winded. Oprah want's me to come back for a show that is more relative to my circumstanses, so we talked and I got some pictures with her.
It was alot of fun.

Well you know the more info we can gather the more informed we are. It's interesting, and informative and I hope it will lead to something that may help me and other's, I will keep you posted.
The new year is starting off better than the last one ended.

The kid's are doing great, and I am blessed having so much presious time to spend with them, they are groing like weed's, Samantha will be 5 on the 20th of this month, and Dominic will be 7 on the 6th of April. Time fly's dosen't it?

Happy New Year everybody...

Well it's Jan, 1st 2008 and I for one am glad 2007 is gone, overall 07 did not turn out all that well for me. It seemed to me most of the people I spoke with did not have a great year.
I know buissness was slow, at least in the construction area, I must have sent out at least 100 resume's and only got a couple of offers, I got laid off on 6/01/07 and went on SDI untill I landed a job in Sep 9/15/07 which only lasted 4.5 weeks (demo only) and found myself off again in Oct 10/15/07, and it took 8 week's of dealing with SDI to reinstate me on my perminent dissability status, I was allmost on the streets. Realy!
Well with that behind me I am going to keep a posative attitude in 2008 It may start a little slow but I'm shure it will finish with a bang!

The kid's are doing great, and had a wonderful Christmas Dominic is going back to school (St Timothy's) tomorrow 01/02/08 and Samantha is looking forward to starting school in September.

My health is well and I fell great, I will go for a CT scan in Feb, but I can tell you the results, my cancer is going away, so I can live on for another day.

I thank all of for all your support throught these trying times. And may god bless you as he has me.
Also a special thanks to the unknown donor.

I wrote you re: your condition but it didn't go through, I will try another way, but if it does not go, can you write me and explain the (PSC) liver condition I will try to help in any way I can

Have A great 2008 and stay possative, Love you all

Hi everyone,

I have to apologize for not posting for so long.
As most of you know I am going through a divorce, and am not working right now, so most of my time is spent on sending resumes out and going to mediation's, court,doctors app ts, and raising my children which live primarily with me.

I feel great and my cancer is stable, I still keep my positive attitude no matter what happens I will not give up on my family and friends.

I spoke to an anonymous blogger this afternoon re: his brother whom has liver problems and I hope I was of some help.

I have been on National Geographic Explorer recently and I think it will air again soon, I am trying to find out now, they did not tell me about the airing,I did the interview about 2 months ago.

I am enjoying the time I am spending with my children and hope they will always cherish.
The Moore obstacles I overcome the stronger I become , they say it builds character,well I must be some character, I will not give up!!!!!! And hope others that read this will gain strength to overcome there obstacles.

I try ed a new cancer drug called Nevermar it made my hands and feet peel the skin was just coming off it was a little pain full so I had to stop it. that's OK there are other drugs, if they ever get out of the FDA, I think the most powerful healing is being positive and not being scared.

I write almost everyday " I don't have cancer, I don't have cancer" 100 times it seems to help.
In closing I love you all for all your support and hope you all have happy holiday's, and may god bless you, as he has for me.

Also the book sale's are low, it may make a good gift for someone, the proceeds go into an account for the kid's collage education, in case I am not here, (dought that) .

Love to all
