Tom brought his marketing and public relations talents to the advocacy of neuro-endocrine-immune diseases. (He referred to them as complex immunological and neurological diseases, CINDS.) His concept of a lobby and awareness day for these illnesses is now commonly observed by patient advocacy organizations around the world, including our organization.

Tom was one of the firsts, before most scientists, to recognize that Gulf War illness is similar to ME/CFS. Because of these similarities and to reduce misconceptions and to make a stronger advocacy voice, he conceived of advocating for these illnesses together, along with fibromyalgia, environmental illness and chronic tick-borne infections. He suffered from quite a few of these illnesses for over 2 decades.

Tom is also known for his bold and frank public speaking in the news media, at conferences and to politicians. Later, when his condition worsened, he continued his work through the Internet. He also is the founder of R.E.S.C.I.N.D., Inc. nonprofit organization. This acronym stands for Repeal Existing Stereotypes of Complex Immunological and Neurological Diseases.

Because Tom's concept of advocating for these diseases as a group is the basis of PANDORA Org's work, we are hosting this memorial and ask that you join us. Stay up to date and get reminders through our Facebook event page.
