The couple’s daughter had no idea what was going on with her loving dad. Claire and Stephen decided to keep his disease in a secret to protect their kid from all possible gossips.

When the doctors said the operation had gone successfully, Moore finally shared his thoughts and fears with people.

It’s all very much on the off chance that something did go wrong because every part of you is saying that nothing will. Waking up and being told the operation had gone well was understandably a huge relief.


Claire was the biggest supporter of her husband during all this hard period. In fact, The Crown star knows very well what it feels like to hear the news able to change a person’s life in a moment. The actress had a benign tumor in her eye when she was 17.

It was horrible and debilitating, but it made me realize that I needed to grab the life I wanted.


Claire and Stephen are both brave enough to struggle all life difficulties. Their mutual love and support help them keep strong whatever it takes.
