In Memoriam: Randy Lomax

July 29, 2016 | Categories: News

The MRF and the melanoma community are mourning the loss of Randy Lomax, who died from melanoma on July 28, 2016.

Randy was diagnosed with Stage III melanoma in 2000, a time when no real treatment options existed. He knew that he was at a high risk of recurrence and so enrolled in clinical trials to try to lower that risk. And he became an advocate. Not just any advocate, but one who made a major contribution.
