Moscow residents knew him as the Owner/Cook at Old Peking Restaurant. Sam has been part of the business community since 1989, until business closure in 2018. He and his wife, Loan, continue to live in Moscow.
A Facebook group site has been established to coordinate help at Sam Loan Tran Group . Facebook groups are a great way to share ideas, coordinate efforts and discuss needs. The group is open to all. Please share and invite others to join.
Thank you to those who helped me meet my gofundme goals to purchase an oxygen monitor and a wearable oxygen machine for Sam. They allow him monitor oxygen levels and to get out of the apartment. I was also able to purchase extra batteries with chargers for a pending trip to visit their families. Funds allowed the purchase shelving for storing equipment and food they wanted from the business and an air conditioner to help him deal with summer heat and forest fire smoke. The remaining funds will go towards long term maintenance of the oxygen machines, tubing to supply oxygen and other medical and household needs related to COPD management.
I have left the gofundme site active as Sam's COPD will always be the driving force down this new path of life. Please feel free to contribute.
