Family and Friends,
As you are aware Tom Brown is a kind and caring individual who loves to live his life to the fullest. He loves being outdoors and enjoys sports. He loves to carry on deep discussions about politics and the meaning of life. Tom is up for anything spontaneous. In recent years however he has been struggling with a very serious condition. In 2008 he was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, which is a lung disease that causes shortness of breath. Over the past three years his condition has progressively worsened and last year he was put on 24 hour oxygen support.
