Sir Tom Moore is an international hero all around the world. He did amazing work throughout his life.
Captain Sir Tom Moore barely needs any introduction from anyone. He is definitely a popular role model. Moore is a former British army officer. He is known for his extraordinary efforts to raise money for charity works.
Captain Moore has served in many countries. He was also an instructor in armored warfare and a keen motorcycle racer.
Back on 6th April 2020, he walked around his garden for charity purposes during the COVID-19 pandemic. His goal was to raise £1,000 by his 100th birthday celebration.
Captain Tom said:
“When we started off with this exercise, we didn’t anticipate we’d get anything near that sort of money. It’s really amazing. All of them, from top to bottom, in the National Health Service deserve everything that we can possibly put in their place. They’re all so brave. Because every morning or every night they’re putting themselves into harm’s way, and I think you’ve got to give them full marks for that effort. We’re a little bit like having a war at the moment. But the doctors and the nurses, they’re all on the front line, and all of us behind, we’ve got to supply them and keep them going with everything that they need, so that they can do their jobs even better than they’re doing now.”
The 100-year-old World War II Veteran raised millions for health workers in the United States throughout the pandemic. He has been hospitalized. Unfortunately, he tested positive for the deadly coronavirus.
His daughter revealed it in a tweet. He was under treatment for pneumonia. But things took a wrong turn, and he ended his battle with COVID-19 last week.
She further said:
“He was at home with us until today when he needed additional help breathing,” Hannah Moore said. “He is being treated in a ward, although he is not in ICU.”
Moore’s daughter said he was having issues with his breathing, but he was admitted to Bedford Hospital on Sunday.
