We love Utah. We love food. We love our kids. We love our readers and we also love Station Park. Combine all things and you have the biggest heart eyes ever.
The sweet family you see in the video is Paul Moore and his family.
Paul was diagnosed with kidney cancer just a few months ago and has bravely faced every challenge with a strong will and a positive outlook. Since his diagnosis, the cancer has progressed despite multiple surgeries and excruciating treatments which have included a hip replacement, kidney removal, and a surgery to remove tumors from his head. Through it all, Joni has been by his side. She has cheered him on, has shown love and support, and has done everything a wife and mother can do to sustain them through their darkest days.
In August 2015, Paul was told he had just a few months left to live. We are beyond heartbroken for him and his family and hope to lift the weight of their daunting financial burdens so that Paul and Joni can make the most of the time they have left together. Joni will soon have to face the challenge of providing for her family financially. Their two sweet girls are both on the autism spectrum and the road ahead will not be easy.
Our hearts have literally ached as we’ve watched the Moore’s go through this journey, but we have also felt uplifted by Paul and Joni’s deep-rooted optimism. Their unwillingness to give up the fight has been a source of strength for every one of us. They have set an indelible example as they fill each precious day with love and gratitude. It is Paul and Joni’s infectious positivity that inspired what has now become The Paul Moore Foundation.
You can support him and his family on October 10, 2015 at Forbush Park in Farmington by participating in a 5K, silent auction, and family friendly activities.
