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

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
