Ex-Ranger Moore Loses Wife To Cancer

UPDATE:  1/10/2013, 4:16pm  Dominic Moore and his family have released a statement

“On behalf of my family, I’d like to express our deep appreciation for the overwhelming care and sympathy we have received since my wife’s passing on Monday. The example Katie displayed throughout her life and in particular during her illness is a source of continued strength and inspiration for us all, as is the love and support of those around us. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the future Katie Moore foundation at katiemoore.org.”

 

Amidst all of the optimistic talk of the last few days comes the very sad news of former New York Rangers and current class act Dominic Moore’s wife Katie passing away from liver cancer.  From Pro Hockey Talk’s Mike Halford:

Some sad news to report — Katie Moore, wife of veteran NHLer Dominic Moore, has passed away after a battle with liver cancer.

The hockey world first learned of Katie’s illness shortly after Dominic missed the final two games of San Jose’s opening-round playoff loss to St. Louis.

These types of stories are hard when you’re talking about someone who’s lived 50 or 60 years.  They’re simply heartbreaking when talking about someone so young.
