Provided photo – The Moore family in Albion was in New York City this morning and appeared briefly on the Today Show. Meganne Moore, 8, is behind her sign about having an emergency appendectomy. Her mother Sara is directly behind her while Meganne’s brother Andrew (hat on backwards) holds the “Hello Orleans County” sign. Their father Mark is next to Andrew in back at right.

A week ago 8-year-old Meganne Moore had an appendectomy. This morning she was on the Today Show, standing with her parents Mark and Sara and her brothers Andrew, 14, and Zach, 13.

They all got camera time except for Zach, who gave up his spot for a smaller kid.
In between segments, one of the TV hosts Willie Giest chatted with Meganne, inquiring about her surgery. She held a big sign that said her emergency appendectomy wouldn’t keep her from the Today Show.

The Moores took their first family vacation in years and went to New York City. Mrs. Moore went to Fashion Institute of Technology at NYC and loved the city. She and her husband both work as nurses. They also have a small farm on Route 98 in Albion.

Mrs. Moore and her two sons are going to Lima, Peru, in February for a mission trip with the Albion Free Methodist Church. She wanted her sons to have some big-city experiences before they went to Peru.

The family was up at 4 this morning and was outside the Today studios at 5:15 a.m. They were on TV around 8 a.m.

“It was very exciting,” Mrs. Moore said.
