Letter to Editor: Moore family grateful to community for support of Lane


From the family of Lane Moore, we would like to extend our greatest thanks and appreciation for all your prayers, donations and fundraisers during his battle with Wilms, a tumor that was cancerous and had to be removed.

Our little hero underwent radiation and chemo and is now in remission. We also give a big thank you to Rio Grande Hospital ER doctors, Air Med, Del Norte Ambulance, Children’s Hospital in Denver and Colorado Springs, Ruth Brown from the Green Spot in Alamosa for all the help and especially for the great time Lane spent with Santa Claus, Danny Rios, Mrs. Jones and to the Monte Vista Head Start, Monte Vista Police Department for the escort, the Monte Vista junior high school band and cheerleaders, and the Monte Vista Fire Department.

You are all real heroes in our eyes. It is really heartwarming to see the great people in our community that cared for Lane. If I forgot anyone this also includes you. God bless you all.

Shawn Moore (father) and Linda Moore (grandmother)
